The authorities of the resort of Budva, in Montenegro, decided to introduce a fee of 1 euro from organized tourists for visiting the Old Town.

The corresponding decision was taken by deputies of the local Assembly (legislative assembly), reports

"The tourist organization of Budva together with travel agencies and hotels will create special points at the walls of the Old Town. Tourists visiting the fortress as part of excursion groups with the assistance of travel agencies will pay the fee," the publication said.

In the first year, revenues are expected to reach 150 thousand euros. The funds raised are used to preserve the Old Town and other historical sights of Budva.

Budva is a resort town in Montenegro, located in the central part of the Adriatic coast of the country. It was founded 2500 years ago and is one of the most ancient settlements on the shores of the Adriatic Sea.

Most of the historical monuments are concentrated in the Old Town of Budva. Located on a markedly sharply peninsula jutting out into the sea, it represents a corner of typically Venetian and Mediterranean architecture. Despite the devastating effects of the 1979 earthquake, by 1987 the Old Town had been completely restored.

The old city is surrounded by a powerful fortress wall and permeates the narrow winding streets that lead to the city citadel, where the museum is now located. Near the citadel there are three ancient churches.
