Budva City Walls, Budva

4.1
Look down on the narrow, cobblestone streets of the Old Town from or gaze out of the holes in the stone and imagine what life here must have been like across the ages. Most of the existing walls with towers, embrasures, and fortified city gates were erected during Venetian rule, although archaeological evidence shows traces of Illyrian, ancient Greek, and Roman settlements. The walls also offer views of the sea and St. Nicholas island. The ramparts widen on the southern tip to form the citadel, a once-tremendous fortification that now is a venue for theater performances.

    The old town, with its walls overlooking the sea, cobbled streets opening onto the basilica and the Church, the cafes and shops, is really a hidden gem to visit.

    Beautiful Bay with a very marina "composed", full of restaurants and shops, very close to the ancient old town/wall. Very lively at night

    It has to be the best place in Budva - exploring the old town and appreciating the history. Around the walls are the best bars, cafes and restaurants.  more »

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.
