History of Budva

The Old Town of Budva is a specific Mediterranean combination of landscape, history and culture in the southern part of the Adriatic coast. In the interior and in the immediate vicinity of the Budva hut, a unique history of two and a half millennia long hides it among the oldest urban centers of the area. According to its urban structure, Budva was a “polism” that had all the features of Greek urbanism with the main street, which led to the main city square, but not through the city center, but lateral as it is today. However, its present appearance with walls as an important fortification system is mostly related to the Middle Ages, although it was later destroyed and reconstructed, especially after the earthquake of 1667. On the Montenegrin coast near Kotor, only Budva has a wall that surrounds the whole core of the city with narrow streets and small squares. People began settling in the area of ​​Budva very early because of their favorable geographical position and mild climate. The oldest, now known traces of material culture from the territory of Budva (Paštrovići, Maini and Grbalj) date back to the prehistory, in the Bronze Age and the Iron Age when the Illyrian tribes were inhabited in this area. There are hill fortifications in which Illyrian riders lived in their communities and stone tumuli in which they were buried.

In accordance with antique historical sources, written heritage and rich archaeological material, Budva is one of the oldest urban centers on the Adriatic, older than 2,500 years. A large number of monumental antique and medieval times is evidence of the continuous and active life of this ancient city. Iliri, i.e. This Illyrian tribe, Enhelian, are the oldest indigenous inhabitants of Budva. In B. v. The Greek tragedy of Sofokles, among the first writers, mentions Budva “Illyrian city”. In the 4th century B.C. Greece was settled by colonization, when it became a rich trading center (emporion), while in the middle of the second century B.C. or more precisely in 168, it was conquered by the Roman Empire. In the first century of the new era, the Roman writer of Pliny, the elders referred to it as the “fortified city of Roman citizens”. In that period, Budva had all the characteristics of a real Roman city with monumental buildings, paved roads and massive walls. He will remain in the Roman Empire until his fall in 395th year. After the destructive earthquake that covered the area of ​​Budva in 518, the Byzantine emperors began to rule Budva (535), and according to Konstantin Porphyrogenitus, a Byzantine emperor from the 10th century, and in the 9th century, more precisely after the beginning of the settlement of 841 Slavs, although there are data on their settlement in the 7th century. Most of the Roman population slowly mixed with the Slovaks that brought Christianity to the press. In the fatal year 841, Budva was destroyed by the Arabs (Saracens) who attacked it from the sea. There are data that Avaris attacked it in the 6th and 7th centuries, robbed and even settled there, so Budva in Budva was Avarorum sinus. Byzantine Emperor Vasily I (867-886) expelled the Arabs from the eastern coast of the southern Adriatic. Evidence of the relatively rapid recovery of Budva and its rise in the 10th and 11th centuries is the fact that between 1089 and mid 12th century became diocese with the cathedral church of St. Ivan the Baptist, and as such was the subject of a dispute between the Bar and the Dubrovnik Archbishop.

After the death of Đurđa Stracimirović, Budva was taken over by the Venetians, who in 1403 left it to the third Balsa, which ruled until 1419, when the Venetians again made it. In a short time he was under the despot, Đurađ Branković, and in 1442 he passed to Venice under which he remained until the fall of the Republic in 1797.
