How to Get From Kotor to Budva by Bus
After spending 10 days in Kotor, it was time to move on. We decided to head to Budva, which is only around 22 km away. It’s a short bus journey and there are many buses per day.
Kotor bus station is only around 650 meters from the main gate of the old town, so it’s a very easy walk. The good thing about this bus journey was that we didn’t need to book our tickets in advance. You can just turn up on the day and buy your ticket at the station.

You need to be 1 EUR for each piece of large luggage you have. That’s always the case in the Balkan countries.
Our journey was quick and easy. The bus was almost full and passengers that got on at later stops had to stand. I assume the buses will be fuller during high season.

Budva bus station is around 1.4 km from the Budva old town. It’s a fairly easy walk.
The Airbnb we booked in Budva was around halfway between the bus station and the old town, so an ideal location.
Where to stay in Budva
We stayed at an awesome Airbnb apartment in Budva that was in a new building. Everything about it was perfect, including the location.
For most of our hotel bookings we us Agoda, as we’ve found them to have the best prices and best choice of properties.
