Fruska Gora is a low mountain, the highest peak of the Red Cot, at 539m n / a or anyone who marches to her look much larger and more massive, because of the plains surrounding it. In the lower regions of Fruska Gora, 300m below the prevailing fragrant meadows, vineyards and orchards in higher dense forest. On the north side is bordered by the Danube and to the south by the fertile plain.

The richness of nature, a favorable geographic position and exceptional climatic characteristics have made it one of the most important tourist areas of Serbia.

It is attractive at all seasons, having visitors both in summer and winter, so if you decide to spend one of your following weekends closely connected with nature, we recommend you to start your winter walk at the crossroads of Iriški Venac. There are two health paths leading from that spot, along the mountain ridge of Fruška Gora, one towards Zmajevac and the other one towards the TV tower. The trees marked with hearts will guide your way through the forest, along the main road. Adjust your pace to the rhythm of your heart and look for the refreshment and some rest in the Arena Restaurant at Iriški Venac. It is located on a meadow above the crossroads, opposite the National Park Information Centre. Besides the interesting ambience and kind staff, you will also like the dishes of the Arena Restaurant´s cuisine. They offer mushrooms from Fruška Gora and other specialties and you can also get a new tourist map of Srem there.
