    Budva's City Walls

    by IreneMcKay Updated Aug 28, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I paid 1Euro 50 cents to walk the walls of Budva's old town. This takes around 20 minutes. You cannot walk all the way round. The views from the walls are lovely. You can look out towards Sveti Nikola's Island, look out across the marina or look inland across the colourful narrow streets of the old town.

    Trg og Crkava

    by IreneMcKay Updated Aug 28, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the main square of Budva Old Town. Here you can visit the Church of John the Baptist with its towering bell tower. This church dates from the seventh century. Inside in the north altar it houses an icon of the Virgin Mary which is said to have protected Budva from plagues, pirates and other horrors since the fourteenth century.

    Nearby is the Church of the Holy Trinity which at around two hundred years old is the newest of the Old Town's churches.

    Also in this square you can find the Church of Saint Mary of Punta, which was built on the site where Spanish sailors placed an icon of the Virgin Mary and two burning candles. The Church of Saint Sava, like the Church of Saint Mary of Punta, forms part of Budva's fortifications.

    The Dancing Girl Statue

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 6, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked away from the Old Town on the opposite side from the marina and the bus station and, as we wandered along the coastline walkway, we encountered the beautiful, graceful dancing girl statue. She stands on a rock and the more flexible among us may have a go at joining her and imitating her pose. My husband had a go too just to keep us less flexible folk in the picture, too.

    No-one knows the true history of the statue, though legends claim she was the daughter of a wealthy Budva resident who drowned in the sea off Budva.

    The Old Town Streets

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 6, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the highlights of the Old Town is just wandering aimlessly around the narrow old town streets. You can get a different perspective of them if you walk the city walls. Despite the influx of tourists, the streets are peaceful and pleasant for a wander.

    The Citadel

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 6, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I paid 3 Euros to visit the citadel of the Old Town. This was built by the Austrians in 1836. The best bit about the citadel are the views from it over the sea, the Island of Sveti Nikola and the new and old towns of Budva. Inside the citadel there was a small library and some exhibits about the history of Budva.

    The Old Town

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 6, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Budva old town is a walled town with several gates. It has a main square, Trg og Crkava, home to several churches and the citadel. It also has some beautiful old narrow streets. It is not a huge old town, but it is well preserved. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars here, too.

    Budva Marina

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 6, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just before the marina there was a little beach. We had a very pleasant swim there on our way back to the bus station. The marina itself is a mixture of fishing boats, boats offering cruises to tourists, pleasure crafts and boats that take you across to Sveti Nikola Island - a beach resort nicknamed Hawaii by the locals.

    walking path

    by xaver Written Nov 1, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another surprise of this small town was the chance to have a walk at the bottom of the mountain just next to the sea, if you have been in cinque terre in Italy, it's something similar to it. The walk is easy and the only pity is the trash you find from time to time and, basing on the smell it stays there for days.

    Walk on the seaside

    by xaver Written Nov 1, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can access the seaside from a small entrance in the historical center which makes it nearly a discover, or at least this is the feeling I had. Infact you arrive in the center of the town from the port and you dont expect to find this small stoney beach where people still swim and sunbath in October.

  • Go and visit the old city of Kotor

    by Gili_S Updated Apr 25, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are already here and have the extra day, be sure you go to visit also the old city and fortress of Kotor. It is just about half an hour bus trip and you can spend the full day exploring another beautiful and interesting old town.

  • The Beach

    by Gili_S Written Apr 24, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the things to do in this place is just to be by one of the small little beaches they have in few locations. This location is not yet blooming or booming with tourists and if you are outside the major summer months the beach here is almost all for yourself and you can enjoy relax time by the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.

  • The Promenade

    by Gili_S Updated Apr 24, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like most coastal towns also here there is the Promenade. However, you can see very well that this city and country are new to this kind of tourist business and not yet developed and modern in the way you see in Western Europe. However, this is not negative at all, actually on the contrary, it is very much welcome and one of the reasons we wanted to come and visit Budva before it is developed into another popular tourist destination.

    Budva old library is located inside the old fortress. This was really amazing surprise to find this beautiful library here, unfortunately I do not know much about it or the full story of this place, so search the net if you are interested to learn more.
    I couldn't find any reliable information regarding it.

    The old fortress is the only paid site to visit in the location. It is small fee anyway for the authorities be able to support the finance of this magic place. The site itself is rather small with short stroll on its walls with a beautiful sea view, landscape and if you climb up on one of the walls you will get actually the best view of the old city from there.

    This is I believe is the small Church of Saint Mary in Punta, built in 840 which make it 1150 years old. It is located by the walls of the old town fortress and you can access it only when visiting the old town fortress.
