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).
