    Location of Budva

    The coastal area called Budva Riviera near the town itself is the centre of tourism in Montenegro. The largest island of the southern part of the Adriatic Sea, called St Nicholas Island or “Hawaii of Budva” is also located in this area.

    History of Budva

    Budva is among the oldest towns in the region; it is more than 2, 500 years old. The town has been part of the Roman Empire and then the Byzantine Empire as well. Later, it was governed by the Venetians for almost 400 years, between 1420 and 1797. After the fall of the Venetian Republic, Budva came under the dominion of the Habsburg Monarchy. During the Napoleonic Wars, the Montenegrin forces, in an alliance with Russia, took over. The French ruled between 1807 and 1813, and then the town was managed by the Russian Empire. The town established its identity in the middle ages. They introduced developments later as well, mainly following the earthquake in 1667. Along the Montenegrin shores, next to Kotor we find the only town completely surrounded by walls. Thanks to its amazing historic centre they often refer to it as “Mini Dubrovnik”.
