WHAT ARE WE PLANNING?
After many long, inspiring walks that we have organized here and there, it's time to return to our roots, and our roots lead from Fruška Gora, the Rakovac region, the place where it all began with our first walk. We haven't passed through this wonderful area, framed by the Rakovac Monastery, Beli Majdan, and the stone hermitage, the only one in the territory of Vojvodina, for a long time. Let's walk the paths of the hermits, which monks have treaded reverently before us, and we do it boldly, exclusively with a smile, through happiness...
WHAT ARE WE VISITING?
RAKOVAC MONASTERY – BELI MAJDAN – STONE HERMITAGE – MONASTERY VINEYARD – RAKOVAC MONASTERY
WHEN ARE WE STARTING?
GATHERING AND DEPARTURE FROM RAKOVAC MONASTERY ON SATURDAY, 20.01, AT 09:00 AM.
EXACT STARTING POINT LOCATION: Rakovac monastery
WHAT IS THE WALK PROGRAM?
At the beginning of the route, we expect about 450 meters of constant ascent to our first attraction - the Beli Majdan quarry. There, we will take our first break to refresh ourselves and hear something about the almost thousand-year history of this place. After that, we have about a 2 km long stretch, with the first third of the path being a constant uphill climb, and the remaining two thirds involve an easy walk to one of the most secluded gems of Fruška Gora - the HERMITAGE OF SAINT GEORGE, carved into the rock. One of the specific features of this site is the numerous inscriptions in Old Slavic left by local monks after their stay in the hermitage over several centuries. From the hermitage, we have about 1.7 kilometers of walking through the monastery vineyards, back to the Rakovac Monastery.
HOW LONG DOES THE WALK TAKE?
The length of the projected route is about 5 km. To complete the entire route, it will take about 3 hours of walking, including several short breaks, making this route excellent for beginners and recreational hikers.
