Fruška Gora monasteries

Fruška Gora monasteries and Sremski Karlovci

Fruška Gora – national park and mountain located 70 km from Belgrade and hosts 17 functioning monasteries of Serbian Orthodox Church, this is why it is known as the Serbian Mount Athos. Excellent geographical position, moderate climate and rich flora and fauna make this mountain special.  Fruška Gora had a great influence on the development of Serbian spirituality and literature and Serbian State itself.

Krušedol monastery

The tour starts from the Krušedol monastery (first half of the 16th century) – endowment of Đorđe Branković (bishop Maksim) and his mother St. Angelina of Serbia. Monastery’s Church is devoted to Annunciation and preserves the most important baroque pictures of Serbia/ In Krušedol all the Branković family is buried as well as King Milan Obrenović, Princess Ljubica, patriarch Arsenije III Čarnojević and famous commander Stevan Šupljikac.

Grgeteg monastery

We then proceed to Grgeteg monastery built in 1471. The monastery was built by Vuk Branković, famous as Vuk the Fire Dragon. Here is the most exact copy of Hilandar’s Three-handed Mother of Jesus. The monastery was burnt and restored many times, it has also played a great role in the Great Migrations of the Serbs in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Hopovo monastery

The next following visit is Hopovo monastery from the 15th century that represents a unique architecture monument. In the 16th century this place represented the most important enlightenment center in Serbia: famous Serbian cultural and philological figure Dositej Obradović lived and worked here.

Danube čarda

Organized lunch in one of authentic Fruška Gora restaurants called Danube “čardas”or wine-cellar, the tour then continues in Sremski Karlovci.

Sremski Karlovci

Sremski Karlovci is located in the bottom of Fruška gora and presents a real gem of Serbian culture and spirituality. Baroque city center, Patriarchy, Cathedral of Saint Nicolas and Catholic Church of Saint Trinity, first Serbian gymnasium built in 1881 and the Library of Karlovac gymnasium – all this make Sremski Karlovci a “museum town”. The town is famous for wine production and annual festival “Wineball”.
