Wikipedia

Stari Bar refers to the old part of the Montenegrin town of Bar. It is located 4 kilometres from New Bar, occupying the top area of a hill and overshadowed by the imposing Mount Rumija. It is widely agreed to be one of the most important archaeological ruins in the Balkans. Throughout the walled old city, there are ruins that represent architectural influences from different times and peoples. It was abandoned after the 1979 earthquake to settle New Bar along the sea, but once the old town’s main aqueduct had been repaired, people began to return. Today, some 1,800 people live in Stari Bar. However, with the close proximity of Bar, many visitors opt for that city’s accommodation and dining options.
