Novo Hopovo Monastery

Fruška Gora National Park

This serene and welcoming monastery dates from the 15th century. As with the Orthodox cathedral in Sremski Karlovci, the iconostasis is the work of Serbia's leading baroque painter Teodor Kračun. Bring an empty bottle to take home some of the icy-cold spring water (it supposedly has healing qualities).
