Boka Kotorska Folklore Dance and Tradition

Arts & Culture Interviews Lifestyle

Throughout history, the geographical position has dictated that the world's greatest emperors, for which the Bay of Kotor was both strategically and culturally important, have ruled in this area. Influences on folk dances, songs, customs and costumes were different, depending on the regions within the Bay, activities of the population, migration, etc. The greatest influence, of course, came from the areas which bordered Boka Kotorska, such as old Montenegro, Herzegovina and Dalmatia.
