At the ruins of Bar Stari Grad, hidden among cliffs and woods, tour 240 ancient buildings and explore winding streets and plazas that had numerous rulers over the centuries. Dating back to the 11th century, the site was under the control of the Byzantine, Serbian, and Hungarian empires, as well as the Venetians and Ottomans. In the ancient stones, you'll see marks of each of these cultures--walls of Catholic and Orthodox churches, Middle Eastern towers and baths, and various military structures. A wide variety of birds and butterflies reside in the ruins today. Bring water with you.

  • Amazing place. Don’t forget to climb up the tallest wall and look behind.
