When you plan your trip to Montenegro, you need to decide where to stay: in Budva or Kotor, or where to stay longer.

This is hard to do, if you’re a first-time visitor in Montenegro. I wish I could have read something similar to this post before deciding on my first trip, but I couldn’t find anything of real use.

Since then, I spent 2 weeks in Kotor and 2 months in Budva recently. I got to know (and fall in love with) both places quite well.

That’s why I decided to share my knowledge and help you choose where to stay, based on your preferences, interests and my information.

I have covered the best things do in Kotor extensively in my other post.

Here, I will concentrate on Budva, Montenegro, a coastal settlement of around 20,000 overlooking the Adriatic Sea, and the comparison of all aspects of your stay there vs Kotor, Montenegro.

Let’s dive in.

Hello, I’m Tatiana. I’m hopelessly in love with cute urban scenes and finding best places in Europe to go.
