Budva

Budva – this is one of the oldest ports in the Adriatic Sea (reputed to have existed since the Phoenicians). What defines the city is its high walls that were built during the 15th century, when the Venetian Empire controlled it. Flying over the city, one can’t help but think that the city looks frozen in time from that period, with historic points that still exist from those years, such as the Church of St. Sava (built during the Nemanjić dynasty’s rule in the 14th century). There are even older sites within Budva, such as the Church of St. Ivan from the 7th century (with paintings and icons done by Venetian artists between the 15th and 17th centuries).
