  • Place, unlike, for example, the old Kotor, is not under the protection of UNESCO. Therefore, the town combines the charm of the narrow, winding streets and old, neat and comfortable small shops and cafes, bars. The city seems old, but lively and vigorous.

  • Walled town with small alleys and shops, 1 church with square and highlight the citadel ... Beautiful views. Tip in summer: go in the morning, too hot otherwise

  • Nice spot, be careful if you are taking a taxi to visit it. Make sure they give you a receipt of the agreed to price before hand. They will change the price on you. Nice place to shop and there are some places that will take credit card! Not the best old town to visit in Europe but a nice afternoon stroll forsure.
  • Walking in history. October season is perfect for an experience in Montenegro, not crowded and perfect weather. Beautiful sceneries of the outstanding mountains and lovely Balkan beaches.
  • The old city of Budva, protected by its city walls, will remind you of similar places like Kotor or Dubrovnik. Very well maintained, clean and inviting, the old city centre of Budva offers you little boutiques, restaurants and pubs shattered around in its narrow streets. There are a few open 'market' places, a couple of churches to visit and the city walls to walk on. In all, in less than an hour you will do the tour of the town. Nevertheless, a beautiful site!
  • This place is beautiful. Lots of small shops, restaurants and the views are amazing. Highly recommend this place
  • Old town is fully reconstructed to look like 17 century, during Venecians rule. Hence everything inside reminds of Venice. Small streets with lots of shops and cool stuff to buy )))

Where to stay in Budva

One of the prime tourist destinations on the Montenegrin coast, the city of Budva offers visitors numerous accommodations of all types. While those looking for luxury can opt for high-end hotels, lavishly decorated apartments, or seaside villas, travelers on a budget have a good choice of more affordable places to stay. These include a solid selection of hostels, boutique hotels, and self-catering lodgings. For the best scenery in the city, head to Budva’s historical old town: while accommodations here tend to be more expensive than in other areas, it’s the perfect spot for those who want quick access to the major sights, as well as cafes, restaurants, and bars. That said, it might not be the best neighborhood for those looking for more tranquil surroundings, especially at the peak of the summer season.
