The town of Stari BarThe Remains of the Glory of Past Times
Once a fortified medieval town and important religious, cultural and political center, the old town was seriously damaged in Montenegro’s war for independence in 1878 and further destroyed and abandoned after a major earthquake in 1979. What remains within the walls are now thousand years of history in an open air museum that is surrounded by endless citrus and olive groves.

Rumija mountainHigh wall divides the sea and the lake
One reason for the city to be founded here was the protection and fresh water springs the Rumija range provides. Rising 1600m high it divides Lake Skadar from the Adriatic Sea. In its steep slopes creeks carved gorges where dozens of flowers, including orchids, bloom here in spring and from the top the reflection of the Albanian Alps can be viewed in the calm surface of the lake.
