As far as the citizens of Vojvodina are concerned, Fruska Gora is a mountain despite the fact that its highest peak, Crveni Cot, is only 539 meters high. This geologically very old mountain stretches along the south-east periphery of the Pannonian flatland in the length of 80 km. With its northern parts, Fruska Gora descends mildly towards the Danube. Petrovaradin Fortress is its most northern point, the most southern one is located between Mandjelos and Besenovo, Slankamen is the most eastern point and the most western one is at Bapska (in the Republic of Croatia).
