Citadel, Budva

3.8
The city's medieval castle, Citadel stands at the highest point in the area and is one of the most structurally significant medieval monuments in Montenegro. Unlike most fortifications, this citadel stands entirely on its own. Within its walls also lie the ruins of Saint Mary's church and the fort's bastions. Climb up to get superb views of Budva's beaches, houses, and hills, and have a drink or a local dish at the restaurant on the terrace. Check out the gallery at the site, which showcases books and maps of the Balkan Peninsula. Put Citadel at the forefront of your travel plans using our Budva trip builder .

  • We visited as a large family. Amazing location. We were there to watch sun go down. The food is ok. Range limited for a family and my seafood risotto was very salty.  more »
  • Certainly a nice view from this citadel that overlooks the sea, but 14 euros admission for 2 adults and 2 teens, it's 1 cheap for the little time we spend there. 1 library and a very small museum with boat models.

  • Great views open from the Citadel. It's a little hot during the day. It's better to go in the evening. The entrance to the museum is 3 degrees, but through it you can go to the wall and see the sunset and of course the picturesque view of both the sea and the old city.
