Fruska Gora (mountain ridge)

This national park protects a picturesque ridge of hills that extend 78 kilometers west from south of Novi Sad towards the Croatian border. In prehistoric times the hills were an island in the Pannonian Sea which covered the whole of northern Serbia. They also have a rich cultural history: no fewer than 16 orthodox monasteries are located here, and traditional farmsteads (Salas) provide a hearty welcome to visitors.

The hills comprise a variety of habitats, including mixed forest, grazed steppe, farmland and meadow.

Birds include: Imperial Eagle, Goshawk, Honey Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Hobby, Saker Falcon, Wood Lark, Creasted Lark, Black, Grey-headed, Syrian and Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Hoopoe, Golden oriole, European Bee-eater, Short-toed Treecreeper, Collared Flycatcher, Hawfinch, Ortolan Bunting, Black-headed Bunting.
