Budva is like the grown up, more well-known and well-developed cousin to Kotor. Just as pretty and rich as Kotor and Perast in terms of culture and history, there is more in terms of tourism infrastructure in Budva. There are numerous beaches to enjoy so make sure you’ve got that beach bod toned and honed. Stuff yourself at one of the many restaurants (we particularly enjoyed the fare at tourist favourite Jadran) and then dance off the calories at Trocadero or another one of the clubs on offer. The nighthtlife is definitely livelier in Budva and combined with its gorgeous Old Town, it’s no wonder that it is the “tourism capital” of Montenegro. If you are looking to party and sun yourself on the beach as well as immerse yourself in the history and culture of Montenegro, you can’t go wrong with Budva.
Things to do in Budva:
– Visit the atmospheric Old Town, and make sure to stop in to the Old Citadela and its museum
– Stop in to the Archaeological Museum
– Sun yourself on one of the numerous beaches
– If you have the chance (and the funds!), get a boat out and splurge at Sveti Stefan, once a small fishing village that has undergone an incredible transformation to a beautiful resort frequented by oligarchs and celebrities
