Overview

Tivat, a small town located in the Bay of Kotor, is quickly emerging as a major tourist, business, and transport center. In summer 2014 it became home to Porto Montenegro. Tivat is set to become a nautical tourism center for the southern Adriatic. The former naval base has been transformed into "Porto Montenegro", a superyacht marina developed by Canadian billionaire Peter Munk.

In 1979, Perast, a small old town in Boka Bay, was listed as a UNESCO World Natural and Historical Heritage Site. Perast is known for its numerous churches, museums, and baroque architecture. Near Perast, there are two islets: Sveti Đorđe (St. George) and Gospa od Škrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks), each with a picturesque chapel.

Perast is a town with a rich history, built in the Baroque style. According to archaeological research, the first settlements appeared in the Perast area in the Neolithic. There are also monuments from the Illyrian, Roman, and Early Christian periods. The city was founded by the Illyrians and was named after one of their tribes: Pirusti.

A visit to Perast also includes a tour of the church/museum Our Lady of the Rocks. According to legend, the icon of Madonna (Mary) and Child (Jesus) was discovered by two brother fishermen on the rock in the sea on July 22nd, 1452. This led to an ancient tradition of seamen adding rocks to the island every time they came back from a successful voyage. The island has been gradually emerging from the sea over centuries. Today, there is an event called Fašinada that takes place on the 22nd of July at sunset - when local residents take their boats and throw rocks into the sea, widening the surface of the island.

Our Lady of the Rocks is particularly interesting given that it is the only artificially built island in the Adriatic, with an area of 3,030 m².
