Citadel, Budva

#2 of 42 in Things to do in Budva
Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The city's medieval castle, Citadel stands at the highest point in the area and is one of the most structurally significant medieval monuments in Montenegro. Unlike most fortifications, this citadel stands entirely on its own. Within its walls also lie the ruins of Saint Mary's church and the fort's bastions. Climb up to get superb views of Budva's beaches, houses, and hills, and have a drink or a local dish at the restaurant on the terrace. Check out the gallery at the site, which showcases books and maps of the Balkan Peninsula. Put Citadel at the forefront of your travel plans using our Budva trip builder.

  • Great view, it was an amazing experience, very inspiring and interesting I will for sure visit again  more »
  • - At western edge of not big O.T. front of Church & have a look in Adriatic Sea. - Central & Bus St. & (i) Tourist Info.: about 2-3 km N.E. by Walk or Taxi (No public Transportation).  more »
  • Great views, interesting architecture. The *magic* fish is there, where you can make a wish while holding on to it :) I think mine will come true very soon ;)
  • Nothing interesting except the view. Not worth the entrance fee, and the offered "free juices" are nothing than a water with not more than 1% - better not offer anything than this BS drink. The old citadel in Bar was much more big and cool.
