Director: Tanja Gardasevic BAR is the only Montenegrin town on two magical coasts, it is surrounded by the clear water of the sea and the lake. Surrounded by mountainous rock and lit by the Mediterranean sun, Bar is a unique oasis of the Montenegrin coast, where you can escape from the hectic pace of civilization and take a break with the sound of the waves and the intoxicating scents of nature. Whatever way you come to the Bar, you will be greeted by unspoiled nature and hospitable people. Picturesque mountain peaks cover the valley of the Bar, and numerous interesting settlements, sandy beaches and endless blue of the open sea bring guests back to this setting. The entire Bar Municipality is a unique tourist destination for rest and recreation, which enriches and changes lives. Nature has endowed the Bar with the most diverse and beautiful geographical attributes, as well as the wealth in everything the Mediterranean can give. The sun, warm and clean water, the beneficial radiation of the sandy beaches, constitute the set of elements that attract the conquerors of modern times - tourists.
