Budva is the heart of tourism in Montenegro and the flourishing center of Adriatic tourism. In the center of namesake Budva Riviera, the city of Budva has many beaches, a very-well preserved Venetian walled-city, and a picturesque nature in the close proximity.
Having a native population of less than 20.000 people, Budva becomes a populous and vibrant city in the summer season due to a flocking number of tourists. Budva is one of the carnival cities of Europe, and also host to various festivals and show events, previously attended by musicians like Lenny Kravitz, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones.
Budva is a city offering diverse entertainment, recreation and tourism options. It is a city with a vivid nightlife with casinos (one had a cameo appearance in Casino Royal) and clubs, a center of trade fairs and shows with the largest exhibition venue in the Adriatic coast, and also a cultural heritage site along with very-well conserved natural landscape.
