Portomontenegro is not just a marina but a small town for itself with various international restaurants, lively bars and wide range of shops and cultural activities. There is also a small naval museum and a Yacht Club Pool.
Old village Gornja Lastva
If you stay at marina Portomontenegro you can visit old village called Gornja Lastva located about 3 km from Tivat on Vrmac hill.
The village has about twenty stone houses, a church built in baroque style and an old olive mill from 19th century. The mill is still working as in the old days.
Traditional “Festivities of Lastva” are organised in August. It is a cultural/artistic manifestation, which has for a goal the cherishing of culture, tradition and cuisine of Kotor Bay.
School ship “Jadran”
Tivat’s trademark is the school ship “Jadran” (meaning Adriatic) and you can see it moored at the town’s pier. It was built in German shipyard in 1930. The boat has sailed more than 400.000 nm and its longest trip was the sailing route Dubrovnik-New York-Boston-Dubrovnik in 1938.
The biggest park in Boka Bay rich in various plants is located behind Portomontenegro marina. The origin of the park was the custom of Boka’s sailors who brought the plants from different far corners of the world from after their naval journeys.
A consulate of a former state
The Consulate of the Socialistic Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, which is more of a museum memory of the past period (1945. – 1989.), today is situated not far away from the promenade Pine in Tivat.
Lately, especially from May to October, the Consulate of SFRJ in Tivat, is interesting for tourists also. In the consulate you can see flags, uniforms of the former president of SFRJ, Josip Broz Tito, and in front of the Consulate there is one of the more prestigious vehicles in which Tito was driven.
