Nice Monastery about 45 min from Novi Sad in a national park. The monasteries here were built to keep the Serbian Faith and culture alive during the Ottoman Occupation. Walled on 3 sides in a pretty location Novo Hoppo done with a few others are a nice day out of town. A car makes it a lot easier.

We are not that big fans of churches and monasteries but this one seemed very nice, freshly renewed, easy accessible, large parking, souvenir shop. If you manage to find some of the residents they might tell you some nice stories from history. Story about water that runs in the monastery which you can get for free if you have an... More

As with Krusedol, worth a quick visit unless you are very religious and wish to spend more time there. No guides or information posted. Interesting frescoes, and less run down than Krusedol. Some religious souvenirs for purchase.

I saw this monastery in the evening, after sunset: the air was cold and pure and you could really smell the winter, the grass, the soil. The church was really dark, it took several minutes for our eyes to finally accustom to darkness, and we could finally see the beautiful and very old frescoes. Very nice experience. Down the same...

Novo Hopovo (novo meaning "new") is a Serbian Orthodox Monastery located in Fruska Gora National Park south of Novi Sad in Vojvodina. The yellow monastery buildings with red roofs are accented by a bell tower that was completed in 1760. The yellow monastery buildings surround the real gem, the beautiful old St. Nicholas church, which was built in 1576 .... More

Novo Hopovo was one of two monasteries we visited on a day trip. We opted out of the organised tour of the monasteries in Fruska Gora since it cost £120 ($170 American Dollars) for the day. Instead we followed the unusual instructions from the Bradt guide to Serbia. 'Turn east into the woods from the beer garden, past the deserted... More
