Tivat Tourism

Tivat Tourism
Set against the dramatic backdrop of craggy mountains, Tivat's beaches and dark blue Adriatic sea make it one of the most picturesque destinations in Montenegro. Located in Boka Kotorska Bay, Tivat has long been popular with local tourists.

Getting There

Tivat airport is the largest airport in Montenegro, although it is not served well by international flights. Austrian Airlines connects Montenegro with Vienna, and you may be able to find flights out of London. Alternatively you can fly to Dubronvik or Zadar in Croatia and then travel by land or ferry to Tivat.

Weather

Coastal Montenegro has a Mediterranean climate with mild, rainy winters and clear, hot summers. The beach season lasts from April to October.

History

This small coastal town is presumed to have been founded before 168 BC during the Illyrian period. Since then, it has been ruled by the Romans, Byzantines, Serbs, Venetians, Turks and Austrians. Tivat was occupied by Nazi troops between 1941 and 1944.

Sights

Renaissance Summer House, displaying Renaissance and Gothic architecture, is one of Tivat's most popular tourist sights. A number of nearby islands, including Gornja Lastva (Flowers Island), Sv. Nikola, and Stradioti offer interesting day trips.

Activities

Tivat, with its natural marina, relaxed air and beautiful beaches, is a center for nautical tourism. Boating and yachting are available for ocean lovers, while the town's botanical garden and Big Park offer a way to enjoy coastal Montenegro's flora.
