Budva In Your Pocket

Montenegro's tourism capital sits along a glorious bay, the compact old town beside a broad sweep of beach. backed by mountains. In the 15th century the town became the last outpost of the Venetian republic, and it remained so for 400 years, gaining its impressive fortress. In summer, it's swamped with tourists from across Europe, but in winter things are great for walks on a deserted beach, and food at restaurants where the owners will have plenty of time for you. Now is the time to enjoy the tiny and picture-perfect Stari Grad (Old Town), perched on a rock jutting in the bay. Importantly, the cafés that remain open in winter make hot chocolate that's to die for.
