I took the 10:15 bus from Podgorica to Budva for a day trip. The trip took about an hour and 45 minutes. The road went through some scenic mountains and then descended through the fog into the historic beach city of Budva.
I walked from the bus station down to the beach and then along the harbor. There were a bunch of small colorful fishing boats and boat taxis. The captains were sitting in the boat taxis waiting for passengers to take to the other towns and islands.
I went into the walled Old Town which is made entirely of stone. It isn't very big but it is very charming and scenic. It's for tourists with lots of coffee shops, restaurants, and souvenir shops. It appears that people do live there though since there seem to be many houses and flats.
After having lunch at a pizza place in the Old Town, I walked around to Mogren Beach which is the next beach past the Old Town Beach. The famous Ballet Dancer Statue is on the rocks along the rock pathway and was very nice and photogenic with the Old Town buildings in the background.
For the rest of the afternoon, I walked along the beach and stopped for coffee and drinks along the way. The day went by really fast. After watching a nice sunset over the Old Town, I walked back to the bus station and caught the 18:00 bus back to the Pod. It was another small bus and it was packed with people.
