The Kovilj Monastery (Serbian: Манастир Ковиљ / Manastir Kovilj) is a 13th-century Serb Orthodox monastery in the Bačka region, in the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina. It is near the village of Kovilj, in the Novi Sad municipality. The monastery was renovated in 1705-1707. According to the legend, the monastery of Kovilj was founded by the first Serb archbishop, Saint Sava.
The Monastery was returned 300 ha of arable land and 700 ha of woods, previously nationalised during the Communist regime. Thanks to this, the Monastery has grown production of honey with 200 bee hives, as well as a variety of brandies made of quince, plums and green nuts. The monastery produces 50.000 liters of brandy per year.
