Nav renders a nav HTML component.

For example:

echo Nav::widget([
    'items' => [
        [
            'label' => 'Home',
            'url' => ['site/index'],
            'linkOptions' => [...],
        ],
        [
            'label' => 'Dropdown',
            'items' => [
                 ['label' => 'Level 1 - Dropdown A', 'url' => '#'],
                 '<li class="divider"></li>',
                 '<li class="dropdown-header">Dropdown Header</li>',
                 ['label' => 'Level 1 - Dropdown B', 'url' => '#'],
            ],
        ],
    ],
]);

Note: Multilevel dropdowns beyond Level 1 are not supported in Bootstrap 3.
