Works on railroad from Budapest to Zemun and Belgrade were started in 1881. Railroad was built on today's Bulevar Cara Lazara (Tsar Lazar Boulevard); and rail station was built on today's corner of streets Vere Pavlović, Puškinova and Bulevar Cara Lazara. It was torn down in 1964, after a new railroad through town was built in Salajka and Podbara neighborhoods.
Work on buildings in Liman was started in the early 1960s, and four parts of the settlement were developed chronologically. Liman I with University campus was started first; and Liman IV was still being built up towards the end of the 1990s.
Between 1980 and 1989, Liman was one of the seven municipalities of Novi Sad City. The municipality included part of the neighborhood of Liman, as well as neighborhoods of Grbavica, Adamovićevo Naselje and Ribarsko ostrvo.
