Montenegro's top tourist destination, Budva draws big crowds with its pulsating nightlife and sun-kissed beaches. Often called "Montenegro's Miami," the city developed around a small rocky peninsula, inhabited by various cultures for over two millennia. A medieval citadel dominates Budva's old town, once protected by a complex network of city gates, thick walls, and a series of guard towers. Although extensively damaged by a 1979 earthquake, the restored old town retains much of its medieval charm that features narrow alleyways lined by small souvenir shops and alfresco cafes. Escape the noisy crowds by exploring the small fishing communities and secluded beaches just a short drive south of the city. Our Montenegro tour itinerary builder website allows you to plan your trip to Budva and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Places to visit with Budva

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.
