  • 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.
