The city's medieval castle, Citadel stands at the highest point in the area and is one of the most structurally significant medieval monuments in Montenegro. Unlike most fortifications, this citadel stands entirely on its own. Within its walls also lie the ruins of Saint Mary's church and the fort's bastions. Climb up to get superb views of Budva's beaches, houses, and hills, and have a drink or a local dish at the restaurant on the terrace. Check out the gallery at the site, which showcases books and maps of the Balkan Peninsula. Put Citadel at the forefront of your travel plans using our Budva trip builder.

I liked this place. It has an amazing view and 2 rooms: library and room with ships. It’s interesting to wander in it, especially when there are no tourists around more »
Great views, interesting architecture. The *magic* fish is there, where you can make a wish while holding on to it :) I think mine will come true very soon ;)
Nothing interesting except the view. Not worth the entrance fee, and the offered "free juices" are nothing than a water with not more than 1% - better not offer anything than this BS drink. The old citadel in Bar was much more big and cool.
