Budva is the metropolis of Montenegrin tourism thanks to the great number of beaches and hotels that make this a most desirable tourist destination.
Apart from its natural beauty, its bay islands and beaches for example, Budva is rich in historic monuments.
The old town is Budva’s trademark. It is raised on the island, which used to be connected for the land by a sandy covering and so it grew into a peninsula. The Old Budva’s town is a unique architectonic and urban entity, which is mentioned as a lodgment even in the antique period. Budva according to those sources is one of the oldest urban centers in the Adriatic; it is more than 2.500 years old. The walls of the Old town were, and are even today, the attraction for both the tourists from the country as well as for those from the farthest parts of the world. They date from the middle century, when in these areas Venetians ruled. Certain damages the urban nucleus of the Old town experienced twice, first in 1667., and then in 1979. in great earthquakes.
When for the first time you visit the old Budva’s town maybe you will think that you are in a labyrinth, because of the braided streets, squares, bulwarks and towers from the late middle century.
In the Old town a city fortress Citadela (Citadel) is placed, which dates from the V – VI century B.C., which is today a stage of the famous City theater.
In town there are also Church of Sveti Ivan (St. Ivan) – a monumental basilica with three transepts, which was built in VII century, the oldest edifice Sveta Marija (St. Marija) from Punta from 840 A.D., and also the church of Sveti Trojica (St. Trinity) built in 1804. year.
The Island Sveti Stefan is today best known as a fashionable summer resort. With the sandy covering it is connected to the land, and such islands, which today are very rare, are called “tombolo”. A famous tribe Pastrovici, used this place in the past, more specifically through the XV century for the defense from the enemies, and today that place reminds us about that through the cannon openings and cannons that are kept as a memory and reminder of the past times. The interior of the town is made of curvy, narrow streets. We also have picturesque squares, 3 churches, and the hotel sweets are found in the elegant houses made in the Mediterranean style.
Sveti Stefan is a summer resort for elite tourists and for the tourists who crave for glamour. When at the end of the 1940’s a decision was brought which said that this place should be turned into a tourist facility, a creation of new history began for Sveti Stefan. Its glory from then until now to world is presented by actors like Sofia Loren and Carlo Bruni, as well as the presidents of the majority of countries of the world, singer, scientists and many others. English princess Margaret stayed as well as Italian King Umberto II of Savoy, famous world actors like: Kirk Douglas, Doris Day, Geraldine Chaplin, Sidney Poatie, Richard Vidmark, Sylvester Stallone, Jeremy Irons… Famous literates Andre Marlow and Alberto Moravia, also stayed in Sveti Stefan, also Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin, famous chess master Robert Fisher, as well as the most beautiful women in the world Claudia Shifer. The majority of the mentioned “crowned heads” stayed in the villa 118, which is a part of the hotel complex “Sveti Stefan”. For that exclusive villa, the price of staying is negotiated with the leaser. The starting price is 1.500 euros a day.
In 1972. year Sveti Stefan got a reward “Golden apple”, as the most exclusive summer resort in the world. In its immediate vicinity a former king’s summer residence is situated, which is today hotel Milocer.

The island is full of deers, rabbits, roe deers, birds… as well as some rare floral kinds. It is covered with thick conifers, pine, and spruce forest. With its greatest part the island reminds to a non – sufficiently examined parts, which are craving for new Robinson Crusoes.

As a lodgment it is mentioned at the end of the XVIII and at the beginning of the XIX century. The town is found in the sandy bay, encircled with the thick pine forests. It used to be mainly a fishing lodgment. The thick pine forests and olive groves, the clean sea, and the wonderful beaches, that surround Petrovac, make this place, to the guests who from year to year are coming back to Petrovac, pleasant for staying.
