About Fruska Gora Monasteries, Novi Sad

The long lost Serbian monasteries up at the Fruska Gora Mountains are a legend. Dated from as far back as 15th century, once upon a time there were about 35 monasteries of which only 16 are preserved now. Some of them are:

  • Monastery Krusedol is one of the oldest among the lot and was built around 1509 and 1512 by the Brankovic family. It suffered a great damage in 1716 but was restored later. There are relics dedicated to the Brankovic family kept inside.
  • Novo Hopovo monastery is one of the most beautiful monasteries with its bright yellow shade. Built in 1541 the Turks had destroyed it at a later time but it was rebuilt. During the seventeenth century, the monastery Novo Hopovo was the educational and cultural center of the Serbs, and for a while it was the center of the diocese.
  • Monastery Grgeteg is older than Krusedol, perhaps the oldest, built in 1471 by despot Vuk Brankovic.

Other than these monasteries there are farms, villages, lakes, mountains, caves, dense oak and maple forests all of which add to the charm of this place. Nowhere else perhaps you may find a more serene natural environment as the one up in Fruska Gora.

Fruska Gora Monasteries, Novi Sad Reviews

  • Perfect place to go out and spend some quality time on fresh air, to recover energy. National Park offers many activities, biking, hiking, walking, running... And when you get tired there is plenty of restaurants to drink some coffee or other beverages.

  • Beautiful landscape, and a nice change of pace, an island in the Panonian plane. Great for walks all year long. I must say that the new developments are starting to ruin the scenery, so if you're planning to make a trip, better now than later.

  • A lovely and peaceful place, great to enjoy nature and a number of old monasteries. You can truly feel the story and traditions. Novi Sad is a small drive away, vibrant town by the Danube.

  • One of the best Nacional parks in this area! Has many lovely walking and hiking tracks, places with a view, and mountain huts to rest. Do not miss it if you are a nature lover.

  • Fresh air, at winter is not very cold. Nice family restaurants. Truck and bus stops there for hot meals at summer cold drinks... ☺
