  • Old town-little srednevekovj, insanely crowded, cramped, but very beautiful, especially at night, when the heat subsides, and around the fabulous twilight. Can be pretty long to wander through the narrow proulkam, but it is impossible to get lost. Near the fortress wall restaurants-you can watch a broadcast of the match or a movie projector pointing straight at the wall of the city. For having a rest in Budva-point number 1!

  • Budva old town is small and has few historic buildings to be seen, so you easily can all the old city within the hour 2-3. The churches of St. John and the Holy Trinity, Citadel remains to be seen. In addition, many small shops where you can buy souvenirs and nice restaurants.

  • most emblematic place of budva. Not to be missed. One can easily spend a half day. Very charming streets with lots of little shop. I recommend the restaurant "Dvoriste', which is in a small been lost and whose la.cuisine is just divine and very hearty at a price very affordable (€ 15 per person for appetizer, flat, coffee and rakiye).

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.
