Aquarium Boka cooperation with the Maritime Museum Kotor

Kotor, Montenegro. Director of the Maritime Museum Kotor, Ms. Maja Uskoković and director of the Institute of Marine Biology of the University of Montenegro, Dr. Aleksandar Joksimović, with their associates, visited the Aquarium Boka today and discussed the forms of future cooperation. Both institutions are members of the Blue Pass system, which gives a framework of cooperation. All those who have a Blue Pass can visit the Aquarium Boka and the Maritime Museum with a 20% discount on the ticket.

Ms. Maja Uskoković said at the working meeting: “Boka Kotorska represents a natural link between the Maritime Museum Kotor, which cherishes its cultural heritage and maritime tradition and the Institute of Marine Biology, which takes care of its natural values. The cooperation between the two institutions is more than logical.”

Dr. Aleksandar Joksimovic pointed out that in addition to cooperation within the framework of the Blue Pass, both institutions will work on a comprehensive agreement on program cooperation. The first step will be a joint spring exhibition at the Aquarium Boka on the maritime tradition and the marine life of Boka, which is planned for April 2023.
