Old Olive Tree


Activities Places of interest

The Old Olive Tree, a symbol of the city of Bar, is the oldest tree in Europe and has stood in the same position for over 2,000 years! To find the tree, make your way to Mirovica, five kilometres from Bar in the direction of Ulcinj. This natural monument is older than any written manuscript or site in the city of Bar and as a result, was protected by the law in 1963. The circumference of The Old Olive Tree is 10 metres and is a definite must-see for any tourist keen to learn about the history of Montenegro as legend says that feuding families would come to the tree to make peace with each other.

The Old Olive Tree is situated in a picturesque park which costs one euro to enter. Take a photo of this historical monument and then continue your walk through the park, enjoying the relaxing atmosphere.
