Staro Hopovo Monastery is situated in the eastern part of Fruška Gora mountains, 2 km away from the Monastery Novo Hopovo. According to tradition, the monastery was founded by Despot Đorđe Branković. The reliable testimony about the monastery date from 1745 and 1746. Based on documents from 1751 it can be seen that up to that time there had been the church with wooden walls dedicated to St. Nikola. Instead of this church which was destroyed in the earthquake, today’s one-nave building with a dome, dedicated to St. Panteleimon was built in 1752. Since 1955, all icons except Preston, have been kept in the Provincial Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments and they are preserved, as well.
