  • Budva's old town is unique and one of a kind. You feel there as if time has stopped. Among the bustling main streets is packed with tourists, but it is enough to turn one side and find the atmosphere of the place. Recommend

  • Similar to other old walled cities by the sea in this region. You'll find your usual buildings and shops in narrow streets. There is a nice walking path along the ocean as well which is really the highlight of Budva.
  • Nice atmosphere, narrow streets. Lovely place to walk and enjoy your meal.
  • Beautiful old town. I recommend the old, small yet wonderful citadel.
  • Awsome plac3 love it. Definitly worth a visit .
  • Way too touristy and spoilt now. Pockets of quiet back streets but too many cruise visitors and tacky shops
