Budva is waiting for you to show you beautiful mountains, sea sides, nice beaches and old spirit. Budva is famous from its night life and Mediterranean architecture. The city is established by one Phoenican, who exiled in Thebes and after leaving it, together whit his beautiful wife found Budva. The city was a part of the Rome Empire, Austro-Hungary Empire, Venice. After the Second World War it is a part of the Yugoslavia, nowadays it is stated in Montenegro. The rich city history stamps the city forever with unique energy and mystique. In 1979 a significant earthquake ruined the city, so now it is rebuilt again and combines the new trends and architecture styles with the old history.

You can have a romantic walk in the old town or go straight to a bar to drink some fired shots. There is variety of beaches with summer atmosphere and joyful views. A lot of Balkans go there, so the party is on the maximum, in case you need it. On the other side very nice restaurants give you plenty of seaside views and satisfied food. Only men are servers and they usually wear folklore clothes as a bonus.

While walking in the old town, I really wanted so badly to get lost…

Now let’s jump in Kotor.

Just in 30 minutes far away from Budva you can reach Kotor. Definitely do the Fortress Walls around the old town on the hill St Ivan! Ivan is traditional Bulgarian name. Maybe it is called like that because of Bulgarian possession for an year. It’s a high adorable view at the top of the Fortress Walls. Take some crazy smiley person and give him or her a big kiss – just to memorize the place. Be careful with the stone walls – on your way up you need to lean under them a bit. If you are not focused enough ,you can break your head. It is experienced, so take it in mind.

After visiting Kotor you can start thinking now which is more adorable – Budva or Kotor – the answer for me is unknown yet. Amazing Montenegro! And as a destination it is cheap compared with the priceless beauty and old towns’ atmosphere of the decades.

The cherry’s cake is Dubrovnik in Croatia. Maybe you have heard a lot about Game of Thrones. I am not going to explain you details where the specific scene has been taken.

Dubrovnik- the pearl of the Adriatic, part of the amazing Dalmatia region. Take a walk on the Fortress Walls and on the main street. Feel the wind’s whispering.Feel the sea waves with some sun in them.

I found one old clock and stayed in front of it for a while. I remember now the atmosphere in details and my skin is bristling: some street musicians play folklore songs, it is crowded and people pass by me talking in different languages. I can feel the sun on my skin and can hear the voice of the sea. The wind is calling me for secrets … I closed my eyes and had the feeling the clock started ticking back. I was in the real parallel time, I saw battles and people, cries and greetings. I felt I was in a Great time and before to be prepared to leave it, my friends came to distract me and bring me back in my world with an ice cream in their hands.

Beautiful Adriatic sea, thank you for your salt kisses, nice weather, gentle atmosphere and sunny views.

One last tip before going there: Take the right company with you, which will drink  lots of shots in the night and will walk with hours to discover new places during the day.

Now pack your things!
