The Sloven tribes settled the territory of today’s Vojvodina during the VI and VII century. Before they crossed the Danube and the Sava rivers, they were settling on the Balkan peninsula. Particularly important cultural centers were Sremski Karlovci, Novi Sad and Fruska Gora monasteries. The government restored monastery complex in the 18th century. Now it is  a specific cultural and historical unit of Serbian Baroque art.
