Budva is undoubtedly the most popular and visited resort in Montenegro. There are many reasons for this: a city with an organized infrastructure, shops, restaurants, parks and a large number of hotels and apartments for every taste. And a stunning natural environment.

If you want to relax simply and beautifully, you are here. If you like noisy get-togethers and parties, you are welcome here. If you are lonely, you should come here too, Budva is quite crowded and lively.

Budva was founded 2500 years ago and is one of the most ancient settlements on the shores of the Adriatic Sea.

Budva is located under a mountain range on the Adriatic coast. In 1979, there was a large-scale earthquake of 7 points on the Richter scale and 9 points on the Mercalli scale. The epicenter was located in the sea between Bar and Ulcinj, 14 kilometers from the shore, the depth of the shock was 12 km.

The Palazzo Kotor, hotels and houses of Ulcinj, Budva, Bar, Risan, Herceg Novi were damaged, and the transport infrastructure was destroyed. Old Budva did not survive the earthquake. What we call Budva is a rebuilt city.

Budva and its surroundings are the largest tourist center of Montenegro or, as it is also called, the Budva Riviera. Famous for its beaches, nightlife and beautiful examples of Mediterranean architecture.

This is Duckley Gardens.

Initially, the construction of the grandiose Astra Montenegro from Mirax Group with the participation of Mr. Polonsky was supposed to be on this site. The start of construction coincided with the economic crisis and Mirax simply abandoned the project. The information is well-known, the defendants are scandalous, now “Dukley Gardens" is located here.

"Dukley Gardens is an elite property on the Adriatic coast in the most picturesque place in Montenegro, which is now possible to purchase with cryptocurrency," according to the website of the same name. The cost of apartments and villas in this location can only be found on request, if anything.

Duklja, or Diocletia, was a medieval Serbian state located in the Balkans within the borders of modern Montenegro. Duklja was located around the Zeta River, Lake Skadar and on the shore of the Bay of Kotor. The border of Dukli and Travunia passed in the city of Kotor.

Oak branches symbolize Christmas. On Badni Dan in Montenegro, they decorate everything with oak branches. Nice, isn't it?

Bizarre shapes in the landscape design of spaces. Budva is quite modern and at the same time conservative in matters of landscape organization.

The consequences of the invasion of the palm weevil. A large number of palm trees were destroyed. An environmental disaster.

The best bathroom interior design, honestly. Somewhere near the Budva - Becici pedestrian tunnel.

Local small pebble beaches (Slavyansky beach, Mogren) and sandy Yaz are popular among tourists.

Budva-Becici pedestrian tunnel.

And that tunnel was used by Marat Gelman as a gallery in the street art format. It's a very cool place.

"Marat Gelman's missionary enthusiasm is admirable, but even more so is the gallerist's ability to implement his large–scale projects. By the way, he came to Montenegro at the invitation of the government, and the mayor of Budva offered him a choice of different best urban spaces. But Gelman chose the "worst" – an underground tunnel connecting Budva with the neighboring village, where most of the holidaymakers live and at least twice a day they pass through it – to the beach and back. This tunnel is already decorated with Olga Florenskaya's "Montenegrin Alphabet" and several other ready-made projects made by the artists during their residency in Marat Gelman's Montenegrin art holdings."

As expected, Marat Gelman's projects on turning Montenegro into a global art capital had a lot of resonance. The attitude towards the cultural stratum regarding the implementation of their grandiose ideas is often accompanied by the stuffing of radical journalists and bloggers. Without delving into the essence of the draft, I would like to note my personal attitude to the creative world from the point of view, so to speak, of the layman - everything has a place to be. This exhibition in the tunnel brightened up our journey. I'm in favor)

"Alexander Florensky's Urban ABC Books" are hand—drawn guides to the edges, districts and neighborhoods, traveled personally and more than once with different goals and consequences. However, a tourist who decides to use them as a literal guide for the traveler is likely to be discouraged."

You can stick to this alphabet for a good couple of hours, how fascinating it is to read and watch pictures. My personal opinion regarding cultural values is that art wants to live. In this context, its manifestation is very appropriate and concise. It was very interesting.

The Budva Riviera.

Impressions from repeated visits to Budva are the most favorable. This is a kind of assembly point when traveling in Montenegro. Beautiful views of the Riviera, an abundance of places to walk, interesting sights and all the benefits of civilization. I definitely recommend it
