After spending a whole afternoon in exploration of the ruins of Stari Bar, I went down to the town's bazaar to rest a while in the summer evening.  The breeze from the mountain Rumija was all I needed while I was sitting in the authentic cafe Kaldrma sipping my Turkish coffee. The whole bazaar was a splendid part of the town, the atmosphere was wonderful. The town experienced its greatest flourish during the Ottoman rule, from1571 until 1878. Many souvenir shops were offering a very good quality products made by the locals. Together with bars, restaurants and other shops they were all placed in old houses built in the past centuries on both sides of a paved steep street. The street lights gave a special charm to it all.

The smell of different cuisines spread out from every corner as I walked down the pedestrian street, watching the locals and other tourists. The menu of their cuisine was something I was used to eat also at home, something very familiar to me. In the bottom of the street I found a pasty shop and went inside to see what kind of cakes they made and ate here. They were mostly the same kind like in Bosnia, but here the size was twice smaller. The price was almost the same. In enjoyed every minute there and was sorry to had to leave it late in the night.
