Stunning beaches, warm friendly people and mythological tales are all part of the wonder and splendour that will greet the top men’s international Beach Volleyball players and their fans when the Swatch-FIVB World Tour arrives in the popular resort town of Budva on the coast of Serbia and Montenegro.

The people of Serbia and Montenegro, who have always been passionate about all things Volleyball, were delighted to discover that the Swatch – FIVB World Tour would be making a stop in the beautiful town of Budva. An old and mythological place, Budva will prove a perfect host for the athletes of the Beach Volleyball circuit who will arrive in town with hopes of claiming a chunk of the $180,000 prize money on offer.

According to Greek mythology, Cadmo, the son of Phoenician King Agenon, founded the town of Budva after being expelled from Thebes. Shortly after his expulsion, young Cadmo arrived by an ox-drawn car into the area now known as Budva and was so enchanted by its beauty that he decided to establish a town there.

This is the first time that the World Tour arrives in Serbia and Montenegro and the selection of the Budva beaches was a shrewd choice by event organizers. With its Old Town situated on a small island that was once linked to the mainland by a sandbar, this picturesque place provides some beautiful scenery and enchanting streets which inspire locals and visitors alike.

Between May 26 – 30 of this year, the locals of Budva will welcome the Gods of Beach Volleyball to their town and they will be expecting to witness plenty of miracles down on the golden sands; they shan’t be disappointed.
