  • There's a lot of history feel. Object it is nicely maintained, at least in this State. If you look at the 1 side Rod above great mountains, and on the other hand is below the Valley and the sea in the distance. In a pair of this place is romantic. If the vychytáte time, when there is not a lot of people so it is great.

  • Bar Montenegro is a town famous for its port where you embark for Italy. I highly recommend a trip to the old town which is about 4 km from the port. Its narrow streets are very characteristic and you feel like you're in an Arab country. I mean if you take the ferry guests around the stari grad Bar

  • We visit the old town of Bar in a stifling August afternoon. Paid parking for cars (€1 all day). A only way very touristy with bars, restaurants and souvenirs. We climb Rocca and reach the fortress (admission fee €2 x adults). The site is kept very bad although it is understood that in the past have equipped with lighting and signage. But now weeds and neglect have taken over. Poor safety on some turrets where there are no railings and netting (so beware if you have kids). The panoramic view is very nice and the site is rich in history but hate to see such a rich heritage unkept.
