Religion and History
National Park Fruška gora is located just 40 min away from Novi Sad, and it is the oldest national park in Serbia, existing for almost 60 years. The higher sections consist of thick forests, whereas the lower valleys of the mountain contain orchards and centuries-old vineyards.
16 Orthodox Monasteries
Fruška gora is frequently said to be the Serbian Holy Mountain because on its slopes there are numerous monasteries, and consequently, the spiritual center of exiled Serbs was established there – the Metropolitanate of Karlovci. In Fruška gora’s monasteries, the spirituality and culture of the Serbs have been preserved through centuries. Fruška gora hides 16 orthodox monasteries, built in the late Middle Ages, famous for their specific architecture, treasuries, libraries and frescoes and numerous archeological sites from prehistoric and historic times as well. This region of unique culture and historical value has been designated a cultural property of exceptional importance to Serbia. The general area of Fruška gora has been rich in religious sites since ancient times, and during the 16th and 17th centuries 35 monasteries were recorded here. Sixteen preserved Fruška gora’s monasteries have a great significance in Serbia’s cultural and historical heritage.
