King Nikola’s Castle and Park (Bar-Montenegro)
The castle was built by Prince Petar Karađorđević, later the Serbian King, and the castle was first mentioned in “Glas Crnogorca” in 1885 when it was built. Built on the seashore, it consists of a large castle, a small castle, a chapel, a guardhouse and a garden, and in 1910 a large dance hall was added. There were wine cellars on both sides, and some of them served as underground tunnels that connected the castle with the towers. The small castle is considerably smaller than the big one and resembles the villas built in Northern Italy. In front of the castle there was a large wooden dock for ships where King Nikola had welcomed all of the well-known and significant personalities. In the period from 1866 to 1916, the King had ten yachts, and the last of them was flooded by an Austro-Hungarian cannon. A large garden with flowers is the gift of the Italian King Emanuel. Today, the big castle is home to the Native Museum, which is used for galleries, exhibitions, music and scenic needs, while the other objects of the castle are in commercial use.
