Budva

Budva is Montenegro’s main tourist centre; the busiest – and in summer the most crowded – settlement along the coast. The secret of the city’s popularity rests mainly on its beautiful, mainly sandy coastline, which caters for the would-be bathers.

In addition to the splendid beaches of the “Budva Riviera”, the city also possesses a tiny, but beautiful, historic centre. Surrounded by a wall, the historic centre is located on a small peninsula which extends as a harbour-side promenade. Characterised by winding, narrow streets, and small squares, the historic-centre is rich in monuments such as the medieval Churches of St. Ivan, St. Bogorodica and St. Sava. Next to the Citadel, which also dates from the Middle Ages, stands the colourful Church of St. Trojica, built in 1804.

Budva Old Town

Budva is considered one of the oldest places on the Adriatic Coast. According to legend Budva was founded by Kadmo, the son of the Phoenician King Agenos, after he had been banished from Thebes. He arrived there on a bullock cart and established the town of Budva.

The old town of Budva lies on a small peninsula that is connected to the land by a causeway. It is surrounded with high walls built in the 15th century. Those walls represent a medieval-style fortification system, with town gates, protection walls and towers. From the urban point of view the town is laid out with narrow streets and small squares and valuable monuments from different Mediterranean cultures that all marked the development of the town Budva.

Budva Historic building in old town

The Church of St. Ivan from the 7th century with paintings and icons done by Venetian painters during the period between the 15th and 17th centuries. The church has in its possession a library and an archive with preserved valuable exhibits of old church books. The Church of St. Marija in Punta, built by the Benedictines in 840. The Church of St. Sava, built during the Nemanjić dynasty’s rule in the 14th century. It was first mentioned in 1413 in the charter of the Zeta ruler Balša III. The Church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1804. In front of the church is the grave of the writer Stefan Mitrov Ljubiša. The church is near the citadel in the old town. Budva Citadel, constructed for the purpose of fortifying the town in the Middle Ages. It owes its current look to the Austro-Hungarians.

Budva medieval church in the old town

The Roman villa ”Villa Urbana” was found during the laying of the foundation stone for the old hotel „Avala“ (in 1938). It is one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the old town of Budva from the times of antiquity. This was a public town building of huge dimensions, with many rooms for various purposes. A special treasure within the house is the symbolic painting of the well-known legend of the origin of Budva, from the 1st or 2nd century AD.
