From there we moved to Budva, also surrounded by walls and situated by the shore on a beautiful bay. By the entrance to town we had pizza and burke (börek) and then stormed the alleys of the old city. We moved to the shore and strolled along the beach, admiring the islet of Sveti Stefan, and from there we continued to Petrovac.
He directed us to the Platinin Restaurant in the center of town, and it was a good choice, inexpensive, with large plates. The bean soup was delicious and filling, but we ordered some other dishes and nearly exploded… We ended up paying €18 a couple, including tip. Back in the guest house we watched the one channel the television had to offer, and hoped for a less rainy day tomorrow.
The lady greeted us with a cup of coffee and recommended a restaurant named “La Terraza. The place has no sign outside but it’s located near the statue commemorating the soldiers of World War II. It was a homemade restaurant, and we ate some good salads and fried fish and it was delicious. We told the owner that we'd come back the next day for breakfast. After dinner we toured the place and then went to bed with the sounds of frogs croaking in an unharmonious symphony.
Day 3 – Overlooking the Morača River
We got up to a rainy morning and took a walk to “La Terraza” restaurant. This time we couldn’t sit on the balcony overlooking the lake because it was raining, so we had our breakfast in a beautiful cellar decorated with antique artifacts and equipped with a bar. We were served all kinds of goodies: fried eggplants, cream cheese, tomatoes, different sausages, a sunny side up omelet, juice and coffee, and all for the price of €5 per person.
We turned right to a parking lot and entered Kristina restaurant overlooking the beautiful view. And what did we order? Orada fish – of which we had fond memories. We received a huge plate with fish swimming in French fries. The taste and the view were both excellent.
Just before we entered the town of Kranjska Gora, we stopped on the left side of the road for lunch in the Milka Restaurant. It’s not the best restaurant, but the balcony offers a spectacular view of the cliffs and the lake. The restaurant also operates a B&B, and the price for a room for the night is €75 – but all the rooms were taken.
