Old Olive Tree is a notable natural feature and a symbol of the city of Bar. Legend has it that in the old days, feuding families would come under the olive tree to make peace. This is how it earned its name--Mirovica, the root of the name meaning peace. The tree is reportedly more than 2,000 years old, and it is one of the oldest olive trees in the world. It has been under state protection since 1957. Put Old Olive Tree into our Bar itinerary app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bar.

  • Recently there was testing and it was found out that this tree is 2240+ yrs old... The only odd thing here is that to visit and see the tree from close you have to pay 1 EUR...  more »
  • A short stop away from the Stari Grad Bar. If your a little bit of a nature lover, you would appreciate the magnificence of creation. A tree which if it could speak, would have many stories to share.....  more »
  • One of the most amazing things to see in Montenegro and Balkan region generally! A living tree older than 2000 years is something you should not miss if you're within the SRFJ boundaries! Curiosity:In the 90' during the war times, Italians tried buying out the tree and transfering it to Italy. Luckily someone in charge was intelligent enough not to sell out.
  • The tree itself, at 2240 years old, is an amazing piece of history. The site itself suffers from its own popularity a bit since restorations went over the top with concrete (the old rugged look was a bit more fitting). Well worth the visit.
