Since a hike is not just recreation but also a space for socializing, exchanging opinions, and new ideas, this time we've decided to awaken our creative side and collaborate with our dear hiker Ivana to create something new!
Ivana Pilipović (Instagram: ispalo_mi_ime) is a young Novi Sad artist who has already organized a large number of interesting workshops for beginners and experienced individuals. She is eager to show us how to channel our creativity. We'll try to gather as much inspiration during the walk to be ready for it!

Ravanica Monastery - Remains of Stari Jazak Monastery - Nadine Cascades - Ravanica Monastery - Painting Workshop with Ivana
On November 19, 2023, at 9 AM, we gather at the parking lot of the Ravanica Monastery in Vrdnik (Exact location: Google Maps). You should arrive at least 10 minutes early at the location. Arrival by your own transportation; if someone doesn't have it, we might have a few available spots to arrange something.
Right from the start, we'll have a chance to get acquainted with the famous VRDNIČKA RAVANICA Monastery, and soon with its secrets.
Shortly afterward, we come across a meadow with a fantastic view of the monastery and the entire Vrdnik village, and then the path leads into the forest, with us following it.
Deep in the woods, we find the remains of the once extremely important STARI JAZAK Monastery. Unfortunately, not much remains of this building, but there's enough to remind us of its former existence. For a while, the path takes us out of the forest, but soon returns us to an even more beautiful setting when we reach the Srneći Potok.
Following the stream, we arrive at one of the most beautiful and less-known waterfalls of Fruška Gora, the NADINE CASCADES. After enjoying the forest and the stream, we return along the same route to the starting point.
Upon return, we move to the ZMAJEVAC mountaineering lodge, where inspired by the sound of the water and the untouched nature, we'll have a chance to transfer what we've seen onto canvas. Of course, with the expert help of our dear Ivana!
