Sandy beach along Budva of some 20 km is treated as one of the most beautiful in Europe. Beaches in Buljarica or Petrovac, Bečići, Slovenska or Jaz beach are some of major reasons that induce guests to spend their vacation in this particular part of Mediterranean.


Budva’s pearl is most certainly Old Town, more than 2.500 years old, treasury of Montenegrin cultural heritage. Narrow streets covered in stone, fortifications that surround it, museums, galleries and sacred objects – treasury that each day in year attracts large amount of visitors.
