Zelenika 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.
