The coastal town of Bar is located in the southeastern part of Montenegro. Bar is a major seaport of Montenegro and the administrative capital of Bar Municipality. Bar itself is a modern city; most of the buildings were constructed after the II WW.
However, the Old Town of Bar (Stari Bar) situated at the foot of Mount Rumija, about 5km from the coast, is worth seeing.
The oldest part of the town was built in the Medieval period. The town gate is from the 9th-11th centuries; some buildings from the 14th century.
In the 15th century the Venetians took over the town, and a century later the Turks came and stayed in Bar until the 19th century.
