The Budvan Riviera is widely regarded as the tourist center of the country. Located in the center of the coast, it is a convenient initial mark for a journey throughout Montenegro. Here are the best hotels, a lot of cafes and restaurants with plenty of choices to suit every taste, and various night clubs and casinos. In the mountains above the city, there is a water park with lots of water activities. The laser beams from the open-air Top Hill nightclub are shimmering nearby. Year after year, Budva is changing — new modern buildings rise, the embankment is renovated, the city infrastructure is developing. Once a small modest town on the shore of the picturesque bay, it confidently turns into a fashionable European resort
Beaches of Budva, shingly or sandy, have a total length of 11 km. Apart from the town itself, the nearby villages of Becici, Rafailovici, Przno, and Sveti Stefan belong to the Budvan Riviera. All of them are located within walking distance and form a tourist favorite walking route along the sea. The Budvan embankment offers a fabulous view of St. Nicholas Island and a rocky cape where the Old Town has been built. The coastal strip in Budva is not so wide, just a kilometer from the sea, the streets start going uphill. Admire the majestic mountain scenery from anywhere in the city.
Despite its impressive age – over 2500 years – Budva does has little to do with ancient architecture. On the contrary, there are a lot of conceptual buildings, modern and stylish high-rise towers, and most of the territory is built up with seaside-style fashionable villas. However, there are islands of history here, the main one is the Old Town on the northern cape of the bay. Walking through its narrow, tangled streets, you can see some representative samples of Venetian and Mediterranean architecture. You can also spend time in cozy bars and enjoy shopping in numerous boutiques.
Other landmarks are the active Podmaine Monastery, Mogren Fortress with a magnificent view of the coast, the island of Sveti Stefan with a wonderful park nearby. The true pearl of the Adriatic, Budva is nice to live in all seasons. In other resort towns of Montenegro, winter is off-season, but never in Budva. On New Year’s Eve, concerts and fireworks are held near the walls of the Old Town. On sunny days in winter, there a few places to find in the cafes on the quay. The tourist season officially opens in early May with a colorful Budvan carnival. Season festivals, concerts of Balkan stars are held throughout the year, and national holidays are widely celebrated.
