Thanks to a general calming down of tensions following the Balkan Wars, Montenegro’s once sparkling tourism industry has experienced resurgence, and Budva is at the centre of it. Located on a picturesque bay along the Adriatic Sea, ancient Budva is a 3,500 year old marvel that boasts long stretches of perfect beach under a tanning sun. Some 19,000 residents call Budva home, but welcome many times that number in tourists. The orange rooftops glisten under clear skies, giving the town a feeling of Riviera splendour. With plenty of historical and modern attractions to keep visitors busy, Budva is a perfect getaway city.
