Description

Mamula is strategically located between Prevlaka and Luštica peninsulas on the entrance to the Boka Kotorska bay. This small islet is of circular shape, and is 200m in diameter. It is 3.4 nautical miles away from Herceg Novi.

There is a fort on the island, built by Austro-Hungarian General Lazar Mamula in the mid-19th century. During World War II, the fort was used as a prison by Italians from May 30, 1942 onwards. The prison was known for torture and cruelty to the prisoners.

The island beaches are very pleasant.

L'îlot Mamula (ou Lastavica) est situé à l'entrée des Bouches du Kotor, entre les péninsules Prevlaka et Lustica. Cet îlot est de forme circulaire et fait 200 m de diamètre. Il se trouve à 3,4 MN de Herceg Novi.

Un fort, construit par le général austro-hongrois Lazar Mamula au milieu du XIXème siècle, orne le centre de l'îlot. Au cours de la seconde guerre mondiale, le fort a été utilisé comme prison par les italiens. La torture et la cruauté envers les prisonniers étaient renommées.

Les plages de l'île sont très agréables.
