Velika Remeta Monastery

Fruška Gora National Park

Early records suggest this tranquil monastery was built around the mid-1500s, though legend has it that it was founded by King Dragutin Nemanjić (1276–1316). The interior is ablaze with startlingly vivid frescoes, and the building is topped by a 40m-high bell tower, the highest in Fruška Gora.
