Krušedol Monastery

Fruška Gora National Park

Founded in the early 16th century, Krušedol is an iconic Orthodox monastery, so much so that it's engraved on the 5RSD coin. Despite the large-scale destruction of the monastery and many of its relics by the Turks, some original paintings remain on the dome's pillars; frescoes and icons inside date back to the mid-1700s. Monks here sell honey, rakija (fruit brandy) and other monastery-grown produce.
