Around 80 km from Belgrade lies Fruska Gora, a mountain in north Srem (Vojvodina). Fruska Gora is proclaimed a National Park in 1960. in order to provide its permanent protection and to improve its natural resources and beauty. It hides 16 orthodox monasteries famous for their specific architecture, treasuries, libraries and frescoes. The best known of all of them is Krusedol. The Krušedol Monastery has been built between 1509-1515 by Bishop Maksim Brankovic (earlier Despot Djuradj Brankovic) and his mother Angelina, wife of the blind despot Jovan Brankovic – the last rulers of Serbia from this famous, but tragic lineage of Serbia. Nowadays Krušedol Monastery is the Mausoleum of numerous significant historical persons, boasting graves of despots Brankovics, the Patriarch Arsenije the Third Carnojevich and many more.
Our next stop is Sirmium. The remains of the once prosperous and powerful Roman city of Sirmium are concealed beneath the streets of today’s Sremska Mitrovica.

Five Roman emperors were born in or near Sirmium: Trajan Decius, Aurelian, Probus, Maximianus Herculius and Gratian.
