From the history of the resort
The main events in the life of the Chan resort date back to the XVIII-XIX centuries. In 1741, the authorities of Kotor restricted the trade of the city with the surrounding points. Access to the seaport of Kotor was closed. Due to the current situation, trade flows began to bypass, through the port of Ch'an. In the village, transshipment points were built and the protection of the sea corridor, which the Russian fleet was carrying out for some time, was established.
