Bar, Montenegro

Old town Bar

Old Town Bar is one of those magical places where modern residents live in the shadow of Turkish baths, Roman aqueducts and a citadel where the first stones were laid over 1000 years ago. 

The Montenegrin government has been pursuing an ambitious project to completely restore Old Town Bar and make it into a living museum, and this emphasizes the important the Old Town Bar has on local Montenegrin tourism, and also as a cultural, religious, and historical icon for the entire nation.

Other notable landmarks in Old Town Bar include the ruins of King Nicola’s castle, Haj Nehaj fortress, and Saint Veneranda church. Also worth investigating in Old Town Bar: the Bishop’s palace, the ancient walls, and the gunpowder store.

These small imprints of Montenegro’s cultural history can be seen on the rocky slopes of Sutorman and Lisinje, where Old Town Bar proudly displays it’s stone buildings that seemingly leap from the mountainside while blending into it’s rough beauty at the same time.  The city has developed into a bustling port in modern times, with modern amenities and a reputation for impressive beaches nearby.
