Aerial view of the coastal town of Budva, the centre of Montenegro's tourism industry, and is well known for its sandy beaches, nightlife, and examples of Mediterranean architecture. Budva is 3,500 years old, making it one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic sea coast, and was part of the Venetian Republic until 1797, fortified by powerful Venetian walls against Ottoman conquests.

Thanks to Ivana for swapping cards.

A rudimentary and rather bland postage label. Not generally my favourite thing to see on a beautiful postcard, though I understand that post offices or postal authorities sometimes don't even go to the "bother" of having real stamps any more. Pity.
