History of Slankamenacki Vinogradi

In the summer of 1770, a professor at a Serbian high school in Novi Sad, Jan Bon, gathered about thousand Slovaks from Backa and Pesta county and brought them to Stara Pazova. On their journey, they looked at Fruska Gora Mountain with sadness because it reminded them of their homeland – the High Tatras. Because of that, at the end of the 19th century they started raising vineyards on Fruska Gora and started making small houses. At first a weekend settlement of the vine growers gradually grew into a permanent settlement.

The name of the settlement comes from the name of a wine sort Slankamenka, and not from nearby settlements Stari and Novi Slankamen, as it might seem at first sight.
