There are not a large number of shops in Budva, so all shopping for tourists comes down to buying souvenirs and hoping for a sale in one of the local boutiques of Italian branded clothing.

There are no beaches in the city of Kotor, but recreation areas are equipped in numerous suburbs.

The last beach has a water park and several large attractions for children and adults.
The key attractions of Kotor are located in the area of the Bay of Kotor, where, together with the neighboring city, they form a single tourist area. But what to see here – Kotov Square or one of the many Catholic or Orthodox churches – is up to the tourist to decide.
Beaches are the weak side of recreation in Herceg Novi, because. most of the coasts here are concreted.

Despite the small size of the city, a huge number of memorable places have been collected in Herceg Novi. People from all over Europe come here to see the island of Mamula and the Austrian fortress. There are also many Orthodox churches and history museums in the city.
