Budva ©
Montenegro's top tourist destination, Budva draws big crowds with its pulsating nightlife and sun-kissed beaches.
Let the collections at King Nicholas Museum and Cats Museum capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Santa Maria in Punta Church and Church of the Holy Trinity. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Budva: Long Beach (Velika plaza) (in Ulcinj), Nature & Wildlife Tours (in Virpazar) and Kotor (Church of Blazena Ozana, City Walls, & more). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Ivan Church, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, kick back and relax at Mogren Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gradiste monastary.
