The fact is that Montenegro, like the city of Budva in recent decades, attracts not only tourists, but also numerous film crews, who shoot various historical films or episodes here. In ancient times for one of these films in the northern part of the Old City brought a giant fake bell and a real anchor, which served as decorations. Anchor and bell so fitted into the picture of the city of Budva that at the end of filming the group did not take these "requisites" with them and presented them to the city in gratitude for the warm welcome. Since then, bronze sculptures, located at the fortress walls of the Old City, day after day attract the attention of millions of tourists.Note: At present, the bell is the most common warehouse for a local restaurant. It has a small entrance door.
