Montenegro's top tourist destination, Budva draws big crowds with its pulsating nightlife and sun-kissed beaches.
King Nicholas Museum and Cats Museum will appeal to museum buffs. St. Nikola Church and Saborni Hram Hristovog Vaskrsenja will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Budva: Kotor (Kayaking & Canoeing, Our Lady of Health, & more) and Virpazar (Nature & Wildlife Tours & Fishing Charters & Tours). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kamenovo Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Milocher Park, contemplate the long history of Citadel, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Ivan Church.
