Historic Site
“Budva’s old town is one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic Sea. At around 2,500 years old it’s a beautiful and historical site. A wander through the town reveals ancient churches and palaces, all crafted from local grey stone. In front of Budva Citadel and Hotel Avala, the remains of the original settlement that were uncovered in an earthquake are on display. The Citadel itself and the museum in the old town are excellent places to learn about the history of Budva. Don’t miss the square in front of Santa Maria del Punta church, with its gorgeous view of the ancient church overlooking Ričardova Glava Beach.”

“After a hard day on the beach, it’s time to brush of the sand and get ready for a night on the town. The old town’s bars come alive after dark, with dancing and drinking until 1am. When the curfew hits, everyone heads to Top Hill, a world-class club that features global DJs and artists every night through summer. Top Hill accommodates up to 5,000 people at a time and has a vodka bar, wine bar, Jacuzzi bar and VIP area.”

City
“On Topliš Hill, just above the town, Aquapark Budva is fun for all ages. There’s a playground with slides, buckets and plenty of dripping water for little ones. There are also wave pools, waterspouts, a lazy river and swim-up bar, all spread over three levels. But the real fun is on the water slides. There are seven different slides, and visitors fly down them at up to 80 kilometres per hour.”
