Citadel, Budva

(4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Budva attractions like Citadel can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This fortress by the sea is a beautiful old city. It makes sense to pay 2.5 euros and climb the wall-a nice view of the old town, the sea and good pictures.

  • Whether fortress, the Citadel lie-you can call it whatever you like. However, the place is quite pretty, pretty even. From the stone walls and houses-summer saving shade and coolness. The whole complex can bypass 15 minutes-20. But we went to the cafe to sit out on the street, in the shadow of the walls, eat fish and drink a glass of red dry wine "Vranc". By the way, in many shops and souvenir shops. Bought a pair of great shirts myself and dresses for my woman. Evening in from tourists literally overcrowded. Great that the next port. Red currant-bunch marine yachts of different high cost and design.
