An impressive orthodox church. The inside paintings are beautiful. It worth a stop if you are in the area.

This is a stunning church. Suggest that you go in and sit for a while. Only then will you be able to take in all the stunning art and icons.

Very nice place and also a little shop where they sell icons and other souvenirs. The surroundings were also so beautiful and nice to sit outside on a bench just to relax and enjoy.

This is a beautiful church and was only completed in 2016. No photos allowed inside but we managed to sneak a couple.

Standing in the centre of Bar well worth a visit even although this is a modern church. Photographs of the exterior with the gold catching the sun can be spetacular
