Budva Old Town — The ancient heart of a modern resort town
Budva Old Town is one of the oldest settlements of the Adriatic and the ancient heart of a modern resort town.
In a country as small as Montenegro, where almost 1/3 of the gross national product comes from tourism, Budva is its tourist flagship. It is located in a uniquely beautiful location on the shores of the Adriatic, surrounded by impressive beaches. It has a multitude of modern hotels and amenities for all tastes and budgets. And with dozens of restaurants, bars, shops, and an intense nightlife, it is undoubtedly an up-and-coming cosmopolitan destination. Its development is continuous, and the so-called Budva Riviera has evolved into one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Adriatic.
And yet, in the centre of this modern resort town lies the heart of one of the oldest towns in the Adriatic. Built on an islet that used to be connected to the mainland by a strip of sand, the Old Town of Budva (Stari Grad) is definitely a place worth discovering.
