Nautical' is the word for Tivat, describing the essence of the city. The whole lifestyle of this busy Montenegrin port revolves around the marina. Stroll alongside shiny private yachts and the enormous cruise ships passing by on the way to the neighbouring town of Kotor. Enjoy the fresh sea aroma and the fun spirit of the boat crews disembarking to have some rest.
Once a popular resort, Sveti Marco Island was long abandoned after the war. Now it's a base for the first 6-star resort in Europe.
While the bay line is the magnet for the most visitors, the inland of Tivat is worth a stroll too: check the peach-coloured buildings, a reminder of the town’s Italian past – it was once under the Republic Of Venice – and rub shoulders with ready-to-discuss-it-all locals in the coffee shops. Then put your best sailor shirt on, head back to the port and go and explore the stunning beauty of Kotor Bay, called the 'fjord of the South'.
