Boka heritage: The tradition of wooden boats
Young people are still interested in old skills and heritage! In the workshop of Master Vitomir Vujović in Prčanj, a team of young people who wanted to attend a workshop on making wooden boats gathered to learn more about this old craft. This two-hour workshop included a lot of history, geometry, details about construction and materials, tradition and profession, and that knowledge was passionately passed on by Master Vitomir. After the lecture, the team present had numerous questions and showed great interest and respect for the details of this craft. This third workshop in a row within the program “Youth and Cultural Heritage” aims to encourage as many young people as possible to discover, research and get to know the traditions of Boka and its heritage, which was definitely achieved last night. This activity is organized with the support of the Municipality of Kotor and the European Endowment for Democracy in celebration of the European Heritage Day in 2021, and it has realized another measure of the Local Action Plan for the Youth of Kotor.
