I have to agree with Peter from Budapest. Stari Bar is a really interesting ruin, and a great place to wander for a couple hours. The views are wonderful. We also really enjoyed walking through the village before and after our visit. The site is well-marked off the main road in Bar. Park at the first parking lot at the... More

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 experience. A few sign with vital information in english, but the feel is that much... More

A very large old medieval town mostly in ruins but being restored. Only 2 euros entrance and definitely worth it. It's huge and the views are excellent. It's a steep climb. (My wife disabled with a stick) couldn't make it up and the walkways inside are poor. But no problem if you don't have any mobility problems. Allow an hour... 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

We've been there in early Autumn, which proved to be a wise choice as it gets terribly hot during the Summer. As this is a rugged Mediterannean terrain, don't expect lots of a shade. The Old Town is a nicely preserved place, with numerous remnants of once crowded castles, houses and cobbled streets. There are some nice places for taking... More

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 like majestic castles ruined by time and past conflict, then you will like the old city - Bar Stari Grad - a beautifully preserved and reconstructed old town and castle in Bar, Montenegro. You are free to wander and explore these beautiful ruins, but the setting is a major part of the attraction as te rugged hills and... More

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 great photo opportunities.

This is a lovely fortified town that is a great walk with views. If you go at sunset the buildings take on a pink/orange cast. Notcrowded at all this time of year.
