General

This tour is a scheduled group tour which operates only on Mondays, all year round. If you look for a tour which will give you good insight about this historical, and also a wine region of Serbia this might be a good choice. The description below will give you a solid overview on what you can experience during this day with #YourSerbiaHost on tour.

Slopes of Fruska Gora and Sremski Karlovci are significant places for Serbia’s history, culture and national heritage. For number of visitors of Serbia these places are „a must“, and there is a firm reason for each of them. For some it’s a place of spirituality thanks to eighteen living monasteries, for others it’s a region of wine with more than 60 wineries and for some it`s just a place of beautiful nature in National park of Fruska Gora. The Town of Sremski Karlovci combines all of it: history, religion, wine and beauty.

#YourSerbiaHost will meet you at arranged place at 10am and after only an hour drive we reach our first stop, monastery Krusedol, a XVI century monastery which is considered for most beautiful monastery of Fruska Gora, and certainly with most important role of its time. It was a seat of diocese of Srem, which was later transferred to Sremski Karlovci. Relics of members of holly family Brankovic are placed inside of the church and many important people are buried there as well, such as two Serbian patriarchs and King Milan Obrenovic. Hint: If you are coming from the USA a monk will show you one significant point on the church wall, don’t forget to ask.

After spiritual experience in this monastery we drive on to Sremski Karlovci, town which is significant in many things and one particularly, in 1699 in Sremski Karlovci Karlovac treaty was signed, when for the first time in diplomacy a round table was used for negotiations. The venue was Chapel of peace which is one of the places we will visit in this great town. In the town centre there are many significant and beautiful places to visit: Four lions fountain, Treasury of Patriarchy residence, St. Nicola’s orthodox cathedral… But also several wineries where we can take you for a quick wine tasting.

From Sremski Karlovci we drive on to Petrovaradin fortress which overlooks Novi Sad from a cliff above Danube. This fortress is called Gibraltar of the Danube and it took 88 years to be finished. Today it’s a place for leisure and culture, if you find yourself here in the beginning of July you can enjoy Exit music festival which is one of the best know European music festivals.

We are crossing the river from Petrovaradin and getting in Novi Sad, second biggest Serbian city and administrative center of Vojvodina region. Novi Sad and its people are always considered a bit different from the rest of people in Serbia, we’ll try to show you what is the reason…

And when we finish with sightseeing, culture and history we are stopping at one special place, to our friends household which is a family owned wine cellar. Here we’ll have a wine and rakija tasting and homemade lunch. In Fruska Gora you must try Bermet, local wine with world fame.

After wine tasting and lunch we are ready to return to Belgrade, it’s only an hour drive.

We did our tour with Vladislav this week. Long story short, our day was amazing. He picked us up in our hotel at 10:15am sharp as we arranged. He started his "history class" as soon as we got in the car telling us what each building was and giving us an overview of the history of Serbia. Our first stop was at the Velika Remeta Monastery; then on to this little town with lots of history called Sremski Karlovci. Then we drove to Novi Sad, which is a beautiful city with lots of history and beautiful buildings. Our our way back to Belgrade we stoped to have lunch in this spectacular restaurant owned by this person that grows his own grapes for wine, makes homemade Rakija, and cooks amazing food!!! It was 2 hours of non-stop eating and drinking. Vladislav drop us off at the hotel ~6:15pm. My husband and I only have good things to say about our expedience with Serbian Private Tours. We highly recommend it. The comment is taken from TripAdvisor review page connected to our service, to see the source follow this link.
