In the tiny village of Frusca Gora, on the outskirts of Novi Sad, stands the medieval Grgeteg Orthodox Monastery, one of the most prominent in Serbia and hosting its own Bishop. The frescoes are most impressive as is the in-house wine-shop selling local wines and agricultural products from the monasterial estate.

One of many beautiful monasteries in the area of Fruska Gora, Grgeteg is a probably the most peaceful one, off the roads lined with berries and bubbling brooks, it's a great place to spend some time relaxing the grounds, and reflecting.

Lovely and quiet, well preserved monastery originating from XV century. Beautiful surroundings. You may combine the visit with other monasteries like Krušedol and Velika Remeta.
