Stunning Montenegro

Thursday 13th October 2016 (continued)
Budva, Montenegro

We arrived in Budva around 5pm, but still had a bit of time to explore the town. We headed for the waterfront, and then had a bit of an explore of Stari Grad, the medieval old town. There are lots of narrow, twisting alleys surrounded by high stone walls, and the fading light gave the town a lovely atmosphere, particularly when the streets opened out onto courtyards with lit up churches or other buildings. We also went up to the Citadel, which had some lovely views over the area.

Budva and Kotor, Montenegro

This morning we caught a local bus from Budva to Kotor, which also has a medieval town. After a short stroll around the town we walked up the walls of Kotor Fortress up to the Castle of St John. It was quite a long way up, which involved manoeuvring around other travellers on their way up or down. Luckily it was a lovely sunny day, but not too hot, and there were some fantastic views all the way along to the top.

Once we had climbed up and down we had a bit more of a wander around the town. We even found a cat museum, although couldn’t find the actual entrance, which is a shame as it looked quite interesting.

We had a bit of lunch, had a look in some shops and then went to catch the bus back to Kotor. We think our bus either didn’t show up, or was so late it made the next time slot, but we eventually got on, and managed to get dropped off right outside our hotel, which was a bonus. After that we went back into Kotor and had an explore in the daylight and walked along a bit of a track to the next beach over. It was warm enough that I almost wished I had my swim suit with me.

Then we had a bit of a rest before heading out for dinner, fresh fish, yum! After dinner we wandered around the town a bit more. As it was the end of the season it had a slightly weird atmosphere, with half the stalls closed and others selling a mixture of winter and summer clothes, and just a few people wandering around like us.

  1. Budva was where some Italian lost control of his. Power boat and rammed us while we were moored. Still waiting on the quote for their insurance company. The boat is in Trogir

    • We might be going to Trogir later today if we have time while we’re in Split. Hopefully you get that quote soon!

  2. Ahh I’m just so in love with Kotor. I’ve just returned myself! https://worldwidewanderingblog.wordpress.com/2016/10/30/kotor-montenegro/

  3. I will be visiting this place very soon 🙂 Thanks a lot for sharing.

    What did you think about the beach in Budva?

    • Thanks! I’m sure you’ll have a great time there. It was getting a bit cold for swimming when we visited, but the beach looked pretty good.
