Budva is an ancient picturesque coastal town packed with history and culture and a popular seaside destination with Montenegrins.

Lined with tables managed by nearby cafes, it is the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely drink while watching local life unfold.
Not far from Budva you’ll find the pretty fortified seaside town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stari Grad, the Old Town of Kotor, dates back to Roman times. It is packed with cultural charm and is not to be missed during a Montenegro yacht charter. Explore the Old Town’s cobbled streets and ancient churches. Make sure you check out the Main Square as well as the Clock Tower. Also, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Medieval San Giovanni Fortress, which sits high above the city walls of Kotor’s Old Town. While the climb is viewed as arduous by many, it is well worth the spectacular views!
