 Summary:
 During the last decades, Novi Sad had experienced numerous changes, which have reflected in the urban matrix, resulting in a lack of public spaces. The squares are a complex urban spaces used for socialization, gatherings and other activities that are gradually losing their prior importance due to the emerging traffic demands. This paper explores open public spaces - Trifković Square and Republic Square, which represent a key fragments of the central pedestrian zone of Novi Sad, an important ambient entity of the city that have not so far reached its full potential. The aim of the research is to define parameters that affect the identification of public space as a square, in order to better understand the historical change and the existing prominence of the urban form of squares, as well as the impact of determined parameters on their revitalization potential. Consequently, this paper proposes possible directions for functional revitalization and complete incorporation of analyzed squares in the central pedestrian zone of Novi Sad.
