Event Time: 10:00 / Event Location: Kotor

Boka Navy (Bokeljska mornarica) is the name for the marine brotherhood or association Boka seamen officially founded in 1859 by genesis in the eponymous medieval guild of sailors founded in the mid-15th century in today’s Kotor. According to tradition, the roots of this organization come from the year 809.
Unlike the old association, which was abolished in 1811 Napoleon’s French authorities, new Boka Navy deals exclusively with maintaining cultural traditions of local sailors.

June 26 in Kotor will celebrate the Day of the Boka Naval Brotherhood: a solemn ceremony in which sailors traditionally handed the mayor of Kotor the keys to the city and dancing a colo in the main square in front of the Cathedral of St. Tryphon.
