Stara Maslina

One of the world's oldest olive trees, thought to be over 2,000 years old. 

One of the world’s oldest olive trees is located near Stari Bar in Montenegro. “Stara Maslina” is said to be over 2,000 years old, and is a truly stunning sight. A side of the tree is unfortunately completely burnt out, due to a lightning strike.
