WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO DO
Budva is the most popular tourist city in Montenegro, which has 38 sandy and pebble stone beaches, and at least half the number of smaller beaches. It is a paradise for people who love swimming, sunbathing, water activities, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, etc. Budva is quickly developing trying to follow all the needs of its many visitors.
EXPLORING THE OLD TOWN AND THE CITY WALLS
The old town lies at the cape of Budva’s spacious bay. Budva is one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic. The legend holds that it was founded by the Theban king Cadmus while the written sources tell us about the Greek colony Buthoa already in 4th c. BC. The Old Town is enclosed by sturdy town walls that stand in the place of the medieval ones but date mostly from renewal following the 1667 earthquake.
The entrance to it is gained through six gates: the main Land Gate from the spacious square facing north, the small Sea Gate towards the small beach, and four others from the direction of the yachting marina. It is possible to climb up the walls in three places and walk along the ramparts from the Land Gate to the Citadel. Above the Land-Gate stands the winged lion of St Mark, the symbol of the Venetian Republic. From the Land Gate starts Njegoševa St., the main street of the Old Town which leads to the Trg Pjesnika (Poets ' Square) with an info point and the tiny Sea Gate to its right.
Unlike Kotor, Budva does not have a high mountain next to the city, but several hills where hiking is easy without a guide or special physical body condition. One hiking trail is over Toplis Hill to Jaz Beach. Hiking has 5 km of ascent and 10 km of descent to the beach. The second hiking trail is from the Maine Monastery to Krapina village and Lastva Grbaljska. This trail has 3 km of ascending and 10 km of descending down to the village of Lastva. The third is a very popular hiking trail from the main highway to Duljevo Monastery and down to St. Stefan passing over Pastrovska Gora hill, where is an amazing view of St. Stefan. The hiking trail has 7 km of ascending and 10 km of descending.
For visitors who love extreme sports, Budva offers paragliding and is the only city on the Montenegrin coast with that offer. Because of favorable winds, the jump start is in Brajici (height 850m) and the flight is over Becici. Guests can have their own paraglider or rent one. The instructor will jump with the beginners.
