Old Bar Fortress
Local name: Tvrđava Stari Bar
Stary Bar is a settlement off the beaten track of today's Bar, full of ruins showing the former splendor of this place. It is one of the best-preserved fortified cities in Europe. Its history dates back to the sixth century, while the oldest buildings are about ten centuries. The whole is surrounded by huge walls. Remains of the Turkish fortress, built on top of the hill, tower over the settlement.
Access to the fortress requires a short climb among the stones. It is the largest archaeological site in the Balkans, as well as an excellent vantage point from which the entire settlement can be seen perfectly. From here you can admire the huge aqueduct from the Turkish times, built in the 16th century, the clock tower, the remains of palaces and temples and inaccessible mountain slopes.
The town called Antibarium by the Romans, lies opposite Italian Bari. In 1878, the Old Bar was recaptured by the Turks, and most residents moved to the new metropolis on the seafront.
