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 Greeks and the Romans have left many traces. In the middle ages, the city experienced a succession of regencies by the rulers of Diocle (medieval State includes the mouths of Kotor) & Serbs aristocrats. The Venetians made their way to the city from 1420 to 1797. At that time, she was part of the Venetian Albania & was fortified by powerful walls against the Ottomans. In the following years, the city experienced a succession of sovereign countries (Austria, France, Russia). After the 1st World War, she joined the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1941 was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy & after was again integrated to Yugoslavia, she now belongs to Montenegro. The old town has many different stories about its origin. Historians believe that it was originally an island before joining the shore by an isthmus of sand. She was apparently discovered by a Greek sailor by the name of Boutoua. Its architecture owes much to the Venetian influences. Doors, windows, balconies, seem to be inspired by the Roman style of the Venetian Republic. There are, among others, 3 main churches in the old town including the 1st was built in the 7th century, the second in 1804, the third in 1840. The old town is not very big but worth there walk through its narrow and winding streets. (photos taken in October 2014)
