BarBar is a major port for Montenegro.
The Old Town of Bar, 4 km far from the coast, is the most significant among the numerous cultural-historical monuments of this town, a witness to its turbulent history. These old bricks are deaf witnesses of numerous conquerors and different cultures.
Bar is a touristy city, mostly in summer. Season goes roughly from May to September. There are tourist facilities, restaurants, sport fields, trade and a marina with 1050 berths. Off season, virtually everything will be closed (cafés, restaurants, hotels, and of course tourist information centers).

Alternatively, take an one-hour drive by a car. It is possible to reach Podgorica airport through a taxi service. A transfer should cost €30 for a vehicle up to four passengers, and €60 for a minivan up to eight passengers.
