Panoramic route: Bar on two magical shores
If there is a town in Montenegro, on the Balkans, where harmony is achieved through diversity – it is Bar. This is the only town in Montenegro, which has in its tourist offer sea, mountain, lake, five canyons, the Old Town – an open-air museum, and the oldest olive tree on the Adriatic, which testifies life longer than two millennia on this area. Travel agency AVE tours takes you on a panoramic route between two magical shores. We go on a picnic overlooking the rugged part of the Skadar Lake National Park. On the Panoramic route, which is about a hundred kilometers long, we will take a break at five lookouts in the attractive hinterland of Bar. You will see and get to know a completely different combination of untouched nature and cultural heritage, go through a magnificent forest of chestnuts whose trees are over 1000 years old.
The sea and lake shores are connected by a unique Panoramic route. When you get to know the charms of the sea and the lake area, you will see why many, who were passing this way, characterized Bar as a town on two magical shores.
Near Ostros are the remains of the monastery complex Prečista Krajinska, one of the oldest monuments in Montenegro. The monastery was first mentioned in the literary work ‘’Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja’’. In the 11th century, Krajina is mentioned as the capital where the court of Prince Vladimir, the protector of today’s Bar, is located.
The guide of the travel agency AVE tours will tell you one of the most beautiful legends – about the love of Vladimir and Kosara. You will also see the Great Well, which according to tradition, Prince Vladimir built in this waterless area.
In Godinje, rural household with local wine and food, the AVE tours guide will reveal the customs of this area. For example, how many vine trees a young men had to plant in order to get married, in the time of King Nikola.
