Budva is one of the oldest cities on the Balkans, with a history of about 2500 years. The treasure chest of the cultural heritage is the Old Town, situated on a small peninsula surrounded by 15th century walls. The old town of Budva is a specific Mediterranean combination of landscape, history and culture in the south part of the Adriatic coast. Inside the walls the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with monuments of different cultures that marked its development. The coastal area around Budva, called the Budvanska riviera, is the centre of Montenegro’s tourism, and is well known for its sandy beaches, diverse nightlife, and examples of Mediterranean architecture.
