Fruška gora is the largest mountain in the province of Vojvodina, and since 1960 it has been one of the five national parks in Serbia. 80 kilometers long mountain is called a ‘mirror of the geological past’ because of the numerous animal fossils found on it. The national park is full of monasteries, 35 of them to be precise, and they were built in the period from the 15th to the 18th century. The one we are visting -Krusedol was founded in the early 16th century, and it is probably the most important one. Monasteries are vital part of Serbian heritage as they ensured that Serbian identity and Orthodox religion would survive through difficult times during Turkish occupation.
