With an alluring mix of old and new, Budva has guaranteed satisfaction in store for every visitor.
Recognized as the Miami of Montenegro, Budva sees an influx of vacationers each year. They visit the town for culture-laden days and upbeat nights in its eclectic atmosphere. Beyond its brand new cover, Budva is also the oldest settlement on the Adriatic coast and holds a special place among archeologists. However, much of the antiquity lies within Stari Grad (Old Town) today. There lies a buzzing modern city of endless entertainment, fine-dining restaurants, and party hubs poised for tipsy nights. They are right outside the ivy-swathed walls of the Old Town.
The Old Town is home to some 2,500 years-old remnants from the Adriatic’s earliest settlers, all on display in front of the Budva Citadel. From Greek colonizers to Romans, numerous civilizations followed their footprints to this marvelous land. The citadel is the focal point of an area filled with casual bistros and cafes, picturesque bell towers, and eye-catching churches. But as far as historical landmarks go, Venetian fortifications encircling Budva’s cultural heart steal the limelight.
Sand-covered paradises of the rocky peninsula, Mogren Beach and Ričardova Glava are perfect places to freshen up in the brilliant blue waters of the Adriatic. The ramparts create an ironic contrast with the fancy beach bars, and the iconic ballerina statue adds a touch of artsiness to their natural state. If you are one for an all-nighter, the parties of Budva are just for you. And, the beach is where it all comes to life.
