Hunt Description

Roe deer hunt are typical for this area of Europe. Game density is very high, but visibility depends on the period of the year, since Roe deer have small body size and when the cultivations in the Pannonia planes are high, they hide easily. Hunt is done mainly with the vehicle, searching for Roe deer, while the final approach is done on foot. During April and May, one may see a large number of deer per outing, allowing the hunter to choose the appropriate trophy. The package includes three representative Roe deer of any SCI medal size. The price of additional deer up to gold medal is $1,900. Gold medal deer can be hunted based on the regular price list in grams, gold medal CIC starts from $3,000.

Orthodox Monasteries
Fruska Gora Monasteries are the unique group of thickly situated monasteries built in the period from XV to XVIII century. Over 35 monasteries were built in a marvelous natural setting, 15 have been preserved till today. This historical and sacral complex has been enlisted for UNESCO program of protection. Once these monasteries have been symbol of Serbian national resistance against Ottoman Empire and guardians of the great national treasuries of sacral arts, relicts and architecture. The visit will cover the monasteries of Krusedol, Grgeteg and Hopovo.
 
Petrovaradin Fortress – Novi Sad
Petrovaradin Fortress was built next to Novi Sad, on the right bank of the Danube, on the site of the Roman fortress of Cusum and the mediaeval Petrikon, the remains of which were demolished in 1690. It was built between 1692 and 1780 on a hill above the Danube, a fortress patterned on the French Vauban system of military fortress-building, to the design of Austrian military engineers Marsigli, Keysersfeld and Wamberg. It is comprised of an Upper and Lower Fortress. The Upper Fortress comprises a network of underground passages and galleries totaling 16 km in length. Petrovaradin Fortress is today best known for the EXIT music festival, held there every July. A great number of other cultural and entertainment events are held in the fortress.
 
Belgrade Fortress – Belgrade
Under the Austrian occupation from 1717 to 1739, and after the construction of new modern fortifications, Belgrade Fortress was one of the most powerful military strongholds in Europe. It was built according to plans drawn up by Colonel Nicolas Doxat de Démoret, a Swiss serving in the Austrian army. Before the Turks returned to Belgrade in 1740 all the newly constructed fortifications were demolished. By the end of the 18th century the Belgrade fortress had taken on its final form, after having built three times and it is surrounded by the Kalemegdan park.
