The Staro Hopovo monastery (Serbian: Манастир Старо Хопово / Manastir Staro Hopovo) is a Serb Orthodox monastery on the Fruška Gora mountain in the northern Serbia, in the province of Vojvodina. According to tradition, the monastery was founded by Bishop Maksim (Despot Đorđe Branković). The first reliable mention of the monastery dates back to 1545/1546. It is on the basis of some data from 1751 that an earlier church with timber walls dedicated to St. Nicholas existed. The old church which had collapsed in an earthquake was in 1752 substituted with the extant single-nave building dedicated to St. Panteleimon. The iconostasis of Staro Hopovo was completed in 1793, and the paintings are by Janko Halkozović.Discover how to plan a Fruska Gora National Park trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Well worth the hike if you can't find a ride. But hitching works. Awesome exteriors and interiors. Magical and humbling.
One of most beautiful Monasteries on Fruska Gora. You can go inside, dont wear shorts or inappropriate clothes. There is a tap water outside.
