Old Olive Tree (Bar-Montenegro)
The old olive tree in Mirovica in 1963 became a protected nature monument and is considered to be the oldest tree in Europe with its 2000 years. It is also believed to be one of the three oldest trees in the world. The tree is 10 meters wide and the legend tells that gatherings of estranged families were held around the olive trees and that is the place of reconciliation. That’s why the place is called Mirovica (mir-peace). Olive groves in the Bar cover the area over 100 000 olive trees, most of which are over 1000 years old. According to the popular belief, no young man in Bar could marry before planting a certain number of olives, and olive oil from Bar was processed in the Old Bar and delivered to America, France and Germany. Visitors also believe that the old tree will bring them happiness, and some even want to marry under it.
