Budva is considered one of the oldest settlements in the Balkans. The legend, confirmed by Greek mithology, says that Budva was established by Cadmo, the son of the Phoenician king Agenon. He was expelled from Thebes and arrived by ox-drawn car in this area where he started Budva. 

The old town of Budva lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time turned into a peninsula. It is surrounded by ramparts originating from the XV century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls and towers. Inside the walls the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with valuable monuments of different Mediterranean cultures that marked its development:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

- The St. Ivan’s church, VII century, has pictures and icons by Venetian artists from the XV - XVII century. There is a library in the church and an archive where valuable examples of the old church books are kept.
- The Church of St. Mother of God, Mary in punta, was built by the Benedictines in 840.
- The St. Sava church originated from the period of Nemanjici in the XIV century. It was first mentioned in 1413 in the Charter of the Zeta’s ruler Balsa III.
- The St. Trinity church is from 1804. There is a grave of Stjepan Mitrov Ljubisa, a famous writer, in front of the church. The church is located in the old town in front of the Citadel.
Today Budva is a center of tourism and a city of theatre, festivals and celebrations. It is a summer stage for cultural productions.

Budva is the most popular seaside resort of Montenegro and is worthily famous for its sandy beaches and medieval old town. Budva is one of the oldest towns on the Balkan Peninsula since it was already referred to in the Greek mythologies. According to the legend, a certain Cadmo founded the town after that his father, "Phoenician King Agenon" turned him out of Thebes.

The old town of Budva was built on an island in the 9th century. But later the narrow firth that separated the island from the mainland was silted up in the course of time and became a peninsula. Budva was under the jurisdiction of Venice from 1455. The town was destroyed and rebuilt several times in the past centuries. Its present appearance developed after the enormous earthquake of 1667.

Budva makes a home for bustling life every summer. Festivals and concerts entertain the inhabitants and the tourists there. Budva has the infrastructure that is needed to welcome foreign guests. Various accommodation facilities are provided there, from simple guest-houses to hotels. A great number of restaurants with intimate atmosphere and elegant shops afford possibilities for relaxation on the coast and in the old town. Furthermore, long sandy beaches allure the holidaymakers to stay.

It is a speciality that the old town is separated so much from the new districts. The winding streets and flag-stony squares of the old town that is surrounded by a wall still raise a medieval atmosphere. A chief attraction of the old town is the St. Ivan church built in the 7th century. The church makes room for some icons of Venetian artists and a library storing up curiosities. A special attraction of the town is the St. Trinity church (built in 1804) since being used by both the believers of the Eastern Church and the Catholics too.
