OLD TOWN BAR
The city of Bar is a popular tourist resort on the south of the Montenegrin Adriatic coast. It is the main seaport of Montenegro.
The city consists of two parts: The Old Bar and the New Bar. The Old Bar is a real archeological museum under the open sky, surrounded by fruit gardens and olive groves. Bar is one of the sunniest cities in Montenegro, and with its sandy beaches surrounded by pines, it is as popular among tourists as any other town on the Adriatic coast.
Bar is also famous for its historical spots, interesting sightseeing places, rich vegetation, sandy and pebble beaches.
The main historical spot of Bar is the Old Town of Bar. It is located at a distance of 4 km uphill from the seashore. It was founded in the 11th century at the foot of mountain Rumija at the height of 110 meters above sea level. This was the “heart” of Bar from which the town began to move downhill towards the sea. And though the Old Town was abandoned nowadays the remains of more than 240 constructions can be seen here. You can also see the aqueduct, left by the Turks, that goes down from the Old Bar to the new part.
The main historical sight of the New Bar is Kings Nicolas Palace, built in the 19th century. It was a present from king Nikola to his daughter and her husband. Nowadays the palaces hold the museum of local lore, where you can see all kinds of archeological, historical and ethnographic artifacts.
Bar is also famous for its numerous olive groves. Here you can visit the Old Olive of Mirovica, which is believed to be more than 2000 years old and known as the oldest olive tree in Europe. It is impossible to believe, but the tree is still alive and bears fruit.
The price of this excursion will be formed on your request, depending of the number of persons.
