The Bay of Kotor was famous for centuries for its sailing ships and maritime heritage. The museums at Tivat, Perast and Kotor are packed to the gunwales with models and memorabilia, and the beautiful little church, Our Lady of the Rock, has hundreds of icons donated by grateful sailors or sorrowing relatives of those who never returned.
But now there appears to be a novel way of visiting the villages and towns around the Boka, and experiencing the heritage or just simply the stunning views from the water.
A few weeks ago we spotted two submarine-looking vessels floating alongside the pontoons in the marina at Kotor. And not yellow, but red.
If you’re looking for the real thing, the maritime museum at Porto Montenegro in Tivat, has a fine Heroj class submarine you can crawl all over.
