OLD TOWN BAR - ancient Antivari - definitely deserves to be singled out among the least well known old medieval towns in the Mediteranean. In this unique monument the remnants of many past civilizations and states that used to rule the region can be recognized in the traces of everyday life from times past. In the town there are churches and buildings from different epochs, squares, medieval palaces and houses that once were abundant with life. During the Middle Ages Bar was the centre of the South Adriatic coast, a city–state which had a coat of arms, a flag, a statute and minted its own coins. In the present day, life in Bar Old Town begins the moment the visitor enters it. Unlike other Montenegrin medieval towns, this place was not inhabited continually, so new times did not bring changes to affect its earlier ambience.
