How to get there:
From the city of Novi Sad, take Hwy. 21 (south) crossing the Donau river, then climbing to the main crest of the Fruska Gora range. Here, turn right and follow the small, but quite nice skyline road going west. Cross another road that runs north-south and continue along the skyline road. As you reach the next major intersection, you may park. This col is at location N45.15261, E019.71526, elevaation about 505 meter.
Route description:
The high point is now very close. Cross the road and take a small road that heads uphill towards the right side. There is an information sign on your left hand side. Another road goes straight uphill towards a large radio antenna, this is not correct. Follow the small road as it gently climbs. Soon, you will see a (locked) gate with a stop sign. One can easily bypass this gate, it is only designed to stop cars. As you proceed further, you will see a house ahead as well as a sign that says that you are not permitted to go any further. It also says that one cannot use a camera. You are now essentially at the high point, the terrain is pretty flat. Unless you want to test how serious the Serbs are about forbidden access, you may stop here.
The GAMM conference started after lunch so I took a small sightseeing trip in the morning to explore the high point of the Fruska Gora range. Unfortunately, the Serbian authorities have closed off the high point, the reason is not immediately clear. I walked as far as being satisfied with my elevation without challenging whatever unfriendly Serbs might be there. (a car was parked a bit further ahead, a sign of somebody being present.) From where I parked, it is only about a 10 minute walk to the high point area. I then returned the same way and drove back to Novi Sad along the small skyline road.
