Photographer's Note

Like Dubrovnik to the north in Croatia, Budva old town has a sturdy city wall encircling it, most of it built during Venetian rule (1420 to 1797 AD). Budva was sacked by the Muslim Saracens in 841 AD. Venice largely held the Ottoman expansion into Europe at bay. The town dates from 500 BC & is thus one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in Europe.
