A walking trail through ancient olive grove

Historic Stari Bar and 2000­years old olive tree

Remains of the old town of Stari Bar (‘Old Bar’) which was once a famous political, economic and cultural centre, are among the main reasons to visit this region. This place was inhabited as early as 2500 years ago. The town surrounded by the city walls was unfortunately nearly destroyed during two different events. First, the town was seriously damaged in 1878 in the struggle for independence of Montenegro. The destruction was completed in 1979 when a strong earthquake caused further devastation and abandonment of the site and damaged also the large adjacent area of Adriatic coast. Even though, a substantial part of this historic jewel was retrieved and reconstructed.


  • From the campsite to the old town of Stari Bar – a single direction: 3.1 km (up to 1,5 hour active walking, difference in elevation 150 m)
  • Back to Bartula – My Olive Garden campsite with the visit of Old Olive Tree – a single direction:
    4 km (about 1 hour walking). Map: http://goo.gl/maps/397TZ

What to take?
Solid shoes required for the stony terrain
1 litre of drinking water at least per person …Let’s go! 🙂

It’s just this olive paradise we’ll walk through from our campsite to the old town of Stari Bar. The trail starts right under the campsite, then leads across the bridge over the brook and through the olive groves for about an hour and half of walking and then it ends right in the historical centre of Stari Bar. There might be small gates on the route in the grove. It is just for livestock to not to hang around everywhere in the grove. You can open but don’t forget to close it back.
We can take the same route back or we can choose a different route which leads us along the 2000­years old olive tree (a fee is required) which suggests the significance of economy based on the olives growing in this region already in the antiquity.
