The organizer of the festival is CAA “Pletenka” (KUD “Pletenka”) in collaboration with World Art Association of Festivals (WAAF).



Tivat is located in the central part of the Boka Kotorska bay.
Although it is the youngest town in the Boka region, Tivat has a lot of interesting and attractive destinations. Renaissance Summer House Buca in the ecntre of the city, Ostrvo Cvijeca (flowers’ island) with sacred monuments, Gornja Lastva, the old nucleus at an altitude of 300 m, the magnificent beach at Plavi Horizonti and the Island Sv. Nikola are tourist destinations that should be visited in Tivat. In the city itself there is the natural marina Kaliman. Tivat is also the only place at the littoral with an airport. There is also a choice of cultural events, such as Bocarska Olympiad and Ljetnje Feste.
But there is one TOP place – you must visit – Porto, Montenegro. Today, Tivat is one of hottest tourist spot on Mediterranean, because of Porto Montenegro – new modern marina for luxury yachts, with amazing settlement behind.
Porto Montenegro
Borne out of the vision of its chief investor, Canadiann businessman Peter Munk, Porto Montenegro’s state-of-the-art marina utilizes the existing infrastructure of the former Yugoslav naval facility upon which it is built. It will feature 630 berths for yachts, including the largest super yachts, and will provide the highest level of service and amenities for vessels of all sizes – including nearby dry-dock and repair facilities. In addition, the development will create a vibrant coastal community of waterfront residences, hotels and restaurants, shopping, water sports and leisure facilities.
But this is just a part of the story – the rest is the destination itself. Porto Montenegro lies within one of the world’s most idyllic nautical playgrounds: the Bay of Kotor. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Bay of Kotor is Europe’s southernmost fjord and the largest natural harbor in the eastern Mediterranean.

The main purpose of this festival is to bring different cultures closer through songs, dances, music and interesting national costumes. The main idea of the organizers is to bring to the festival different choirs, folklore and modern dance groups from different countries and different parts of the world and to give them the exclusive opportunity to display their artistry and creativity on the stage.
The participants will have the opportunity to meet new people, establish new friendships and learn about different cultures and traditions.
The idea of the festival is to develop communication and dialogue between diverse cultures, by nurturing tradition as well as modern dance styles, thus combining the traditional and the modern in a timeline that will take the spectators from history to modern times.
