This church is very interesting to visit, it was bigger than I expected and I had a great time looking around in it.

The out-side of the building is probably been recently renovated. Quite impressing with a clock/bell tower. The indoors is quite peaceful with frescoes and paintings.

It’s a nice building standing in the old town (close to 2 other churches) I though the outside was more impressive than the inside Frankly not much more to say

This is a relatively small church set in the heart of the Old Town with some nice artwork and mosaics. Nothing outstanding but interesting nevertheless.

This Catholic Church is set in the centre of the old town in a small square. The church contains paintings and icons in particular the Madonna of Budva which is from the 12th century. The altar painting/mosaic from the 1970s was unexpected, but quite interesting....More

Budva’s Catholic Church. While not overly as impressive as others it still is carved in history. The bell tower is special. A good place to attend a service.

As far as catholic churches go this a fairly plain one, however the bell/clock tower is quite impressive. Worth a look when in the area.

nothing really special, inside the old town, which is small but nice to walk in. This is just an ordinary church but there's also the orthodox church which is nice to see from the inside

As with most churches in the area these are full of character if this kind of thing floats your boat. At the very least it is worth a look around and you can gain some of the history of the area.
