Fruška gora (Serbian Cyrillic: Фрушка гора) is a mountain in northern Serbia. Most of the area is administratively part of Serbia, but a small part on its western side extends into eastern Croatia. The area under Serbian administration forms the country's oldest national park. Sometimes it's also referred to as the Jewel of Serbia due to its largely pristine landscape and protection effort, as well as the Serbian Mount Athos, due to a big number of Orthodox monasteries.

Getting there

The national park is located right next to Novi Sad and this is the best starting point for visiting. You can get here from most bigger cities in the area. The largest international airport is located in Belgrade and the drive to Novi Sad is no more than 1 - 2 hours away by car or train.

When to visit

The national park is worth a visit during all seasons. Because of the vicinity to Novi Sad, you will be able to experience both the city and the park. This provides opportunities for great experiences in the colder months as well.
