Porto Montenegro is located in Tivat, in the Boka Bay, the coastal city in the southwest of Montenegro. It is one of the best Mediterranean marinas and listed in the top 15 elite super yacht marinas worldwide. It’s the project of a Canadian businessman Peter Munk who changed this former Yugoslavian naval shipyard, once called Arsenal, into a luxurious port. The port has high-end events and provides facilities for celebrations such as anniversaries and weddings and parties. It’s a posh marina with designer shops and fantastic restaurants. It’s becoming a new Monaco, one of the top luxury destinations in Europe, with the super yachts and billionaire visitors from all around the world. Although in Europe, the berths and fuel are half price of the other ports within Europe.
Tivat is the city where the Porto Montenegro is located. It’s a coastal town in Bay of Kotor close to the other popular destinations of Montenegro like Kotor, Budva and Lustica Peninsula. Tivat has the second airport of Montenegro. The first thing comes to mind about Tivat is Porto Montenegro but the city has other attractions like the Naval Heritage Museum, Buca Gallery which used to be the summer house of the Kotor noble family Buca and Gorazda Fortress between Tivat and Kotor.
