You’ll see two sides to Bar on this trip – both the old and the new. While the new town has a fairly modern feel to it, the people of Stari Bar live among remnants of the past, like Turkish baths, Roman aqueducts, and a citadel where the first stones were laid over 1,000 years ago. On your walking tour around Stari Bar, you’ll spot things like mosques and Ottoman-esque buildings as you potter along the streets. You’ll then head even further back in time to the old olive tree – it’s the oldest tree in Europe and has stood in the same position for over 2,000 years. The final stop is King Nikola’s Palace. It housed the Montenegrin royal family for over 50 years, and is now a museum. You’ll get a guided tour of some of the exhibitions, which feature artwork, rare books, folk costumes, and the country’s crown jewels. There are also reconstructions of the interiors of the palace, so you can see how the rooms would’ve looked. You’ll have some time to wander around the museum before heading back to the ship.
