WHAT ARE WE PLANNING?

Eagles are increasingly rare over the forests and fields of Fruška Gora; it seems as if they have lifted their wings from everything, even abandoning the Eagle's Rocks. These rocks were formed around 200 million years ago and were once inhabited by these magnificent celestial rulers.

WHAT ARE WE VISITING?

BEOČIN MONASTERY - OSOVLJE - EAGLE'S ROCKS - CRVENI ČOT - BEOČIN MONASTERY

WHEN ARE WE STARTING?

GATHERING AND DEPARTURE ON SATURDAY, MARCH 9TH, AT 09:00 AM, AT BEOCIN MONASTERY

WHAT IS THE WALKING ITINERARY?

The walk starts from BEOČIN MONASTERY, passing by a mini version of the Versailles Garden created by the French, who later worked on it. The path leads us gently uphill on a gravel road, separating us from a stream and leading to an ascent through a coniferous forest towards Dobri Potok and then further to OSOVLJE and an abandoned hotel.

After recalling its glorious days, we will continue the ascent to the EAGLE'S ROCKS, about 3.5 km of constant ascent. This site was formed around 200 million years ago through sedimentation beneath the ground, with its peaks now above the surface, serving as a kind of viewpoint.

After a break, we start the return journey towards CRVENI ČOT, covering about 2 km. It is the modest highest peak of Fruška Gora at 539 meters above sea level, transformed into a military base and not particularly inspiring today.

From there, we descend back to the Beočin Monastery through a beautiful forest path. The descent is approximately 5 km long.

HOW LONG DOES THE WALK LAST?

  • The length of the planned route is 13 KM. To complete the entire route, it will take us between 4-5 HOURS, including several short breaks.

HOW TO GET TO THE STARTING POINT?

  • If you are coming by your own transport from Novi Sad, after crossing the Liberty Bridge, continue through Sremska Kamenica, Rakovac, and the new part of Beočin. When you turn left towards Stari Beočin, the road leads you straight to the monastery.
  • For those without transportation or those willing to offer a ride for cost-sharing or simply to help someone, you can search for the Facebook group we named "Hajd na hajk," intended for all nature lovers for easier organization of hiking trips.

WHAT USUALLY TO BRING FOR HIKING?

  • Minimum 1 liter of water, usually more.
  • Comfortable and sturdy walking shoes.
  • Snacks, sandwiches, fruit, lunch—whatever you wish to eat in nature without guilt.
  • If you have a favorite walking stick, bring it; if not, nature might hide your new favorite.
  • Cap/hat, sunglasses, sunscreen—whatever you find suitable.
  • Spare/change of clothes.
