I warmly recommend to all religious tourists to visit it, monks are very kind and it is real heaven on the Earth. It is situated high in the hills, but it definitely worth to visit and feel all the tranquility.

Off the beaten track. Very peaceful quiet little place with very few tourists. Fantastic views over the bay. The Monks are very friendly and will gladly show you around and tell you about the history of the Monastery.

Old monastery at the northern part of Budva. The garden and the pathways surrounded with trees and wildflowers make it a beautiful place. You can just feel your mind and soul relaxing here. Definitely worth a visit.

Podmaine monastery is located up the hill from the Budva center. Calm and peaceful, nice place to hide from the hassle and sun for a while. Monastery terrace provides beautiful view to the sea and Budva center.

Walking around this Monastery gives you a feeling of the peace and tranquility that abides above the town of Budva. The views of the town below are amazing but it makes you wonder what a great plain of land lay there before.
