A complex geophysical investigations has been performed at the site projected for building the "Verige" bridge across the Boka Kotorska bay of the Adriatic Sea in Montenegro. Geological and geotehnical explorations, together with the drilling data, indicated a very complex and rapidly varying geological and geomechanical settings, consisting of steep dipping carbonate rock masses interchanging with flysch series (with the small scale steep dipping intemal layering), especially at the "Kamenari" side of the bay. Furthermore, relatively intensive faulting has been observed at that side of the bay, while the other side "Opatovo" is characterized by the relatively thick covering layer (20 meters) consisting of a rock fragments inserted in mainly clayey material and laying over the rock masses. Over 30 boreholes were drilled at both sides of the bay and under the Sea.
