Private Day Tour: Fruska Gora Monasteries and...
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Fruska Gora is an area near Novi Sad, its landscape of rolling hills covered in green trees is spotted with some 15 monasteries left from the larger number built between the 12th and 15th centuries. Many are still working monasteries, others are in some form of ruin, some damaged by Nato bombing. Monks are very friendly, some speak English, and willing to help if they can. We even shared coffee and a rakia with one. All are worth a visit if you have time, but if not three I particularly liked were: Krusenal (where we were lucky enough to see a triple Orthodox Baptism!), Velika Remeta and Grgeteg. Remember that monasteries don't allow shorts, tank-tops, or photography. If you have the time you can hike between several of the monasteries which given the spectacular scenery would be a great choice for this with the time (and stamina).

Since the time of Romans grapes from Mt. Fruška Gora have been transformed into the most beautiful wines. Around 1,700 years have passed since the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus planted the first grapevine on the slopes of this mountain, in the village of Neštin. According to some historic scripts he was overthrown by his soldiers since at the time of peace he made them clear the forests and plant vineyards.

Interesting Orthodox medieval monasteries in Fruska Gora hills. There are 18 monasteries which most of them is still functional.

Well hidden in the woods, you need some maps / navigation tools. Some of them are in ruins, others well restored, like Stari Hopovo. Lots of icons and people are willing to show you around.
