Tour description:

Before we start, let us point out that this is not a classic tour as it never follows the same pattern. We take you to the places off  beaten tracks to some hidden corners of this spectacular mountain, all of them beautiful in its own way - the very reason why we want to unveil as many of then as possible to our guests. So, sit back and immerse yourself in these pleasant surprises!

We commence in Novi Sad crossing the bridge over mighty Danube. Our destination is central-western Fruška Gora, which is less frequently visited than other parts. Following B-roads through the colourful fields, orchards and dense forests before we  visit three of no less than sixteen Orthodox monasteries and convents located here. Admire their architecture and artwork but  also get the feel for Orthodox Christian spirituality and soak-in unique tranquillityof these sacred places.

Apart from  monasteries there are also visits to two local wineries that continue two-millennia old tradition of vine growing on Fruška Gora. Wine tasting of some excellent wines is included.

Lunch is served in a local “čarda”, - traditional village inn by the Danube, offering day's catch of fresh fish, quality wines and 'unplugged' live music providing a relaxed atmosphere.

Last leg of our journey is in the village of Banoštor, on the banks of Danube. We visit Majkina radionica (“Grandma’s Workshop”), local womens' crafts cooperative dedicated to preserving traditions of local embroidery and sewingart. We inspect their amazing work, admire the handicrafts and original souvenirs, accompanied by snacksfreshly made on site.

Return to Novi Sad mid afternoon.
