A few hours the next day on a self-guided tour was all we needed and then we headed straight out. Possibly we just weren't aware of things to do or had just started off on the wrong foot but, even so, I'd recommend it just as a transportation hub.

The city center has a more metropolitan feel, though small, and the old town up in the hillside has a much older and cute set-up. I'd recommend walking up to the old town as the climb through residential streets and olive groves was a nice introduction to Montenegro style.
Once again, however, like in Podgorica, we struggled to find our hostel. There were no street names or house numbers and our hostel ended up being in a residential neighbourhood with no sign and it was only by chance we stumbled across it.
Don't miss seeing the oldest olive tree in the world if you get to Bar! Over 2000 years old!

The city is arguably situated along the largest fjord in the world and the views from the mountainside fortress are breathtaking! The water is crystal clear and the mountains are seemingly perfect examples of Balkan geography.
Take the long zig-zag trail up the mountainside and enter the fortress from a window at the back. You will want to leave early in the morning before the sun gets to hot and bring a lot of water because the climb is quite long but is totally worth it. One, this avoids you paying entrance fees, but also, Two, there are small homesteads, a church, and a scattering of animals along the way. You can walk down the main route on the steps to the town and get the best of both worlds in a sense.
