Sremski Karlovci and the Monasteries of Fruska Gora

An easy half hour bus ride from Novi Sad, Sremski Karlovci is a lovely little town which offers access to national park Fruska Gora. The park is supposedly an expansive hiking spot, but in the boiling August heat physical exertion was a bit out of the question. Instead, a NYC friend and I hired a private taxi driver to take us on a tour of the monasteries in the area. The very helpful tourist office in town helped us to arrange it.

The driver took us to three monasteries – Velika Remeta, Krusedol and Grgeteg. Although I’m not a huge architecture buff (as previously mentioned), nor a Catholic, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and thought the buildings, art, and general area were stunning.
