Make the best of your day and spend it at Fruška gora mountain. Drive through its slopes, enjoy fresh air and divine nature, visit two monasteries, and all this by World War II American Jeep. Beside the drive, you will also enjoy in boat ride on the Danube.
The bus will tranfer you to the meeting point by the Danube in the Čortanovci village. Enjoy our breakfast and welcome drinks on a small floating house on the Danube.
After breakfast it’s time to get on our World War II American Jeeps owned by old-timer enthusiasts from Čortanovci. We will first drive on dirt roads that follow the Danube to reach the charming and historic town of Sremski Karlovci. We can also arrange sightseeing of the town on demand. Passing through this small town we enter the confines of the National Park and reach the town’s favorite excursion point Stražilovo.
From here we head up the mountain through groves and forests and then over its top on the other side to the Grgeteg Monastery. It is a place of contemplation with a beautiful iconostasis by the famous fin de siecle artist Paja Jovanović.
Back on our dirt-roads we drive to another Serbian Orthodox monastery – Velika Remeta, best known for its eight-floors tall belfry. Not far away is Ubavica, a spring of mineral water deemed curative by the locals. Our ride continues through orchards and fields and brings us to Krušedol Monastery. This is the most famous and richest in art treasures from all sixteen Orthodox monasteries of Fruška Gora.
After a respite on tarmac roads we come back to Čortanovci. Here we will visit Kozarica spring and the ruins of Roman frontier post Castra Herculis. Back on the terrace of our floating house. Time for lunch, complete with delicious home-made sweets, locally produced wine, rakija and juices.
We will wrap up our day with a boat ride on the Danube where we will watch the sun slowly set behind the thickets on the riverbanks.
