This Olive Tree is over 2000 years old. I personally don't think this was worth seeing for 2 Euros. We basically spent 5 minutes here. We took a couple pictures and that was it. If you take the bus to get here, it's located two bus stops away from the Stari Grad bus stop.

The only interesting thing about it is the fact that it's that old and could have witnessed a lot of history and in fact has survived through this history. As a site - nice but nothing special. 2€ entrance fee.

The 2000 year old olive tree was of interest to me. I am a keen gardener and I have an olive tree in my garden. It was said that it is the oldest in the world!

There is not much to say other than it is interesting that a tree can be so old, otherwise it's a quick way to spend a Euro.

An old saying tells the story about this three that has been here for the last 2000 years. It says that if a family have problems they should sit under the three and solve them. It's a lovely place!

"Stara maslina - Old Olive tree" is located near Old Town Bar, but you need to ask local people how to get there. Entrance was around one euro in 2013.
