As every where in THE « ecological country », you must pay an expensive entrance to visit old stones surrounded by waste ... hopefully, I expect that our euro will be use to clean the all historical sites in this country ! (Entrance to the citadel -...More

I absolutely love the old town in Budva. Great memories, cozy ancient atmosphere, attracting tourists attention. Loved that spirit of older streets. Want to come back.

The Citadel was 3.50 euros to get in. The visit takes about 15 mins to walk around and admire the view. There is not much else to see really. Still worth doing for the price.

nice panoramic view of the city - saw a few places where you could also eat - i guess i'd give this 5* if i had a guide or more information that's easily accessible about the citadel.

Nice view. We wanted to get a drink in the lounge bar/restaurant. We were told by the waiter they don’t offer drinks in the restaurant, they only offer dinner. He was rude. Should not be working in the service industry. View was nice at the...More

It had a really nice view on the sea, the city and the nearby beaches. The museum was also interesting. There are free drinks for the visitors. However it was much smaller than what we expected. To sum it up, it's a nice place where...More
