The history of Tivat originates in ancient times, there is an opinion that the founders of the first settlement were either Illyrians or Greeks. But, unfortunately, there is no visible evidence of those times in Tivat. From the Middle Ages - the time of Venetian rule in Kotor Bay, in the city there remained a medieval stone tower - the remains of the summer palace of the Kotors aristocratic family. Today, the medieval hacienda is used as an open summer theater venue.

But in the nineteenth century Tivat began to actively develop. The Austro-Hungarians built two shipyards in the Bay of Kotor. One of them is the military Arsenal and has become the city-forming center of Tivat for the next hundred years. In Yugoslav times, it was here, in the Bay of Kotor, Soviet submarines came to service and repair, and Soviet sailors looked with envy at the multicolored Yugo and Zastava parked among the palms.
