Make the best of your day and spend it at Fruška Gora mountain. Enjoy the fresh air and divine nature, visit two monasteries, and all this by WW2 American Jeep. Besides the drive, you’ll also enjoy the boat ride on the Danube.
The bus will transfer you to the meeting point by the Danube river in the Čortanovci village. Enjoy breakfast and welcome drinks on a small floating house on the Danube.
After breakfast, it’s time to get on WW2 American Jeep owned by old-timer enthusiasts from Čortanovci. We’ll 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 Stražilovo, the favorite local excursion point.
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 equipped with a beautiful iconostasis created by the famous 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 at 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 most beautiful sunset.
If you wish, we can also organize an overnight stay in the floating house or in the rooms of the nearby inn “Like at home”.
