Is also another interesting manifestation, which promotes culture and poetical creativity. This manifestation is traditionally held in Bar in November since 1987. It is mostly dedicated to children creativity as well as to works of children’s authors and poets. The manifestation “Under old olive tree” lasts for several days, and beside the presentation of books and collections of poetry of children’s authors, the program of the manifestation is characterized by painting and literary works on subject “Olive tree, peace and friendship”. For the most part the manifestation is held in place called Mirovica, where the trunk of the famous, over 2.000 years old olive tree is located. During the last day of the manifestation, Bar’s elementary school pupils, as well as writers plant an olive tree in the yards of primary schools, and as a wish for piece and friendship to be spread among people they symbolically throw the wreath made of olive branches into the sea.
