A few kilometers from city centre is the old town of Bar. In the hills, not close to the seafront. And not very easy to find... Mostly it is ruins, and sadly the history of the old town is not easy to learn by this...More

The whole Old Town is quite well preserved, especially the walls and best of all it is really large, so you can walk around the remains of churches, homes, etc. Entrance fee is only 2 Euro

The old city is an enjoyable afternoon out. The walled city is in ruins which have been partially restored. The museum is small and city fairly well marked. Entry was inexpensive and the view was beautiful.

If you're near Bar, don't miss it's castle. A couple of years ago we arrived too late and it was already closed, so this year we went back to Bar just for the castle. Definitely worth it, it's a nice walk, stunning views and some...More

Ask for a bus (mini-busI to the Old Town (Stary Bar). If the time is inconvenient, take a bus to Ulcinj and ask the driver to stop at Posta Celuga (read "Tseluga") and Vladra cafe. Cross the road and go towards a mosque... More
