pruge bivse Jugoslavije
in 1966, photos by Niels Munch Christensen
Zelenika was at the end
of a long branch line which left the Dubrovnik line
at Uskoplje. It was 78 Km from there to Zelenika
and the main intermediate station was Herceg
Novi. The line terminated on the Gulf of Kotor
and the last few kilometres were alongside the seashore.
The history of the line is recorded in the book
'Zeljeznica U Boki Kotorskoj' by Josip Weber, Hercegnovi 2009
(ISBN 978-9940-9250-0-0). Neils visited
Zelenika in September 1966 and these photos are a
record of what he saw. The section from Uskoplje to
Zelenika closed to all traffic in 1968.
