The Old Olive Tree, a symbol of the city of Bar, is the oldest tree in Europe – it has been there for over 2,000 years. It grows in the place Mirovica on the fifth kilometre from the city of Bar to Ulcinj. This natural monument is older than any written monument about the city of Bar and its inhabitants. The Old Olive Tree in Mirovica is a natural monument protected by the law in 1963. It is over 2,000 years old and is considered to be the oldest tree in Europe. Its circumference is 10 m. The legend says that feuding families would come to the Old Olive Tree and this is where they would make peace.
