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.
