Fruska Gora Wine Tour & Hiking - 1 day
Tour highlights: National park Fruska Gora, viewpoint, wine tasting, local food, local wineries, Sremski Karlovci buildings, hiking
Sremski Karlovci is a charming little wine destination of Serbia where we have the chance to taste the Bermet – the wine prepared with herbal remedies, which is the trademark of Karlovci. The quality of the wine here is so high that, back in the time of the Austrian Hungarian Empire, the Viennese Court released the wine growers of Karlovci from compulsory military service so that they could keep on producing wine. On this tour we will visit Sremski Karlovci town centre and the museum of wine and honey, where we will taste the local wine and honey and enjoy our lunch.
Fruška Gora is a mountain in north Srem. Most of it is located within the Syrmia region, Serbia, but a smaller part on its western side overlaps the territory of Croatia. Sometimes, it is also referred to as jewel of Serbia, due to its beautiful landscape protection area, nature and its picturesque countryside. Fruska Gora is proclaimed a National Park in 1960 in order to provide its permanent protection and to improve its natural resources and beauty. The area of active protection is 25.525 ha. Fruska Gora is an isolated, narrow, island mountain in Pannonia plain. It is intended by river courses extending to the south and north, with some side ranges with steep slopes, spreading from the main narrow range. Its location, specific geological history and different microclimatic conditions make it very interesting and important to science. Thanks to unique and very rich deposits of fossil fauna and flora, Fruska Gora is called the 'mirror of geological past'.
