Fruška Gora National ParkMonasteries nestled in Serbia's oldest mountain range.
Explore Serbia's oldest national park, Fruška Gora, with historic orthodox monasteries, vineyards, and scenic hiking trails.
Welcome to Fruška Gora, Serbia's oldest national park. The park is a vital green oasis with 16 monasteries dotted around the area, and it's often referred to as the 'Mount Athos of Serbia'.
The park is covered in a dense forest, primarily consisting of linden, oak, and beech trees, among others.
One of the main attractions in Fruška Gora is the collection of orthodox monasteries, most of them dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. These monasteries have survived a lot: Ottoman invasions, World War II and many are still functioning today.
The park offers a network of well-marked hiking and biking trails. You can expect a variety of landscapes as you move across the park - from meadows and vineyards to thick forests and the occasional historic monastery. The highest peak is Crveni Cot (539 meters), which offers panoramic views of the surrounding area.
Fruška Gora is also known for its vineyards, and viticulture here dates back to the Roman times. Today, several wineries in the region offer wine tours and tastings, which are a must-try for any wine lover. Local wines are produced from international grape varieties but also autochthonous ones like 'Smederevka' and 'Probus'.
