Park visitors will find many of historical and cultural monuments hidden in the forests and elsewhere. Whole this area was exposed to numerous conquerors so that there are only a few of the earliest monuments within the Park dating back to Old Ages, such as Acumincum fortress near Stari Slankamen or Malata Bononia at Cerevic.

However, quite a number of medieval monuments are well preserved. These include remains of ancient fortress near Slankamen, remains of Vrdnik tower, famous Petrovaradin Fortress, The Peace Chapel in Sremski Karlovci and others.

Several monasteries scattered all over Fruska Gora are of special interest. They were destroyed on numerous occasions, rebuilt, destroyed again and finally restored in the late sixties. In the Second World War they suffered heavy damages and plunders, their art treasuries were burnt up, frescoes and paintings destroyed. Thus only ruins remain of once lovely monasteries of Besanovac, Kuvezdin and Sisatovac.

Monasteries of Rakovac, Djipsa, Grgeteg, Jazak, Hopovo and Velika Remeta suffered heavy damages also. Some of them have been completely or partially restored, although their frescoes and treasuries were not saved from destruction. Such in case with Krusedol, Vrdnik, Mala Remeta, Petkovica and Pribina Glava monasteries.

Recent history also left numerous traces here. During the Second World War when almost all of Europe was under German occupation, Fruska Gora boasted of being never completely under the German command. Some parts of it always remained as a liberated territory. Each village keeps memories of those days, while at Iriski venac big monument was erected to the Partizans of Srem, the work of sculptor Sreten Stojanovic.
