"Budva" Budva by JLBG

Budva Travel Guide: 336 reviews and 793 photos

Budva was founded by the Greeks and is among the oldest cities of the Montenegrin littoral. As most cities of the littoral, it had numerous rulers along the centuries. In 1443 and for almost four centuries, it became the southernmost position of the Republic of Venice. It was during that period that most of the old town was built and the general frame was not very different from what it is today.

We have not visited Budva this year and will give here a few bird's eye view shot from the road running from Petrovac to Cetinje.

    Ah, what a coastline :-))) Sveti Stefan looks so nice, but I am a but doubtful if such a luxury hotel is a good idea. But then... tourism calls.

    I must admit, that I do not know much about this part of the world. The views are beautiful though and the fort - impressive and huge.

    It is good choice to see Budva off-season, but not in winter. Anyway, we see you have enjoyed the view from the road. The news about Montenegro coast is pedestrian tunnel between Rafailovici and Kamenovo (near Budva).

    I spent a week in Budva and loved it. I never had a camera with me, so it's great to see your photos.

    Some people idolize musicians, whereas others may find athletes to be the perfect role model. Me, I admire you & am jealous of all your travels. I guess there is more time for leisure in France with a 35 hour work week.

    Jean-Louis, another very interesting little gem from your visit along this coastline! The Sveti Stefan island hotel looks very impressive - I had not heard of it before.
