A small but cozy settlement of Przno
is located 6 km from Budva
and is riotous with thickets of olives, pomegranate and figs. From sea waves and winds, it is protected by three stone reefs with an old watchtower on one of them.
The settlement originated on the site of a fishing village, which is distinctly felt in the architecture of the buildings. Now the town has gained fame as a small, but popular tourist resort. If you are looking for a secluded place for a relaxing holiday - clean beaches, olive groves and a steady pace of life of the town itself contribute to this. In small restaurants and cozy cafes you will be offered delicious seafood dishes.

Partially this beach belongs to the hotel "Maestral".
And if you want some noise, drive and modern entertainment, Budva is in 15-minute drive, where life boils up to the very morning.

. This is one of the most beautiful beaches of the Adriatic coast. Only the guests of Villa Milocer can rest on it for free. For other visitors, the cost of rest is 75 euro. But it's not worth to be upset, there are no less beautiful and clean beaches nearby, such as Sveti Stefan
and Drobni Pesak
. Beaches near St. Stephen are divided into the public on the left side with a rental of sun loungers and closed, on the right side, for hotel guests. Sandy beach Kamenovo stretches for 730 meters along the coast and covers an area of 12800 square meters. Emerald subtropical forest limits the Kamenovo beach, under the shade of which you can relax and refresh yourself in good restaurants with excellent cuisine.

What to see in the vicinity of the city?
The main entertainment during the rest in Przno can be considered a walk through the beautiful park of Milocer
and excursions to the nearest neighborhood of the village.
Founded in 1934 near the former residence of the Serbian royal family, today Milocer is the official place for rest of the President of Montenegro. Surrounded by pine forest, this truly chic resort is famous primarily for its beach. "Kralicina plaza" or the Queen's beach, 120 m long, was named due to the fact that it had a special affection of Maria Karageorgievich. It is located in a small picturesque bay and is considered the best on the Budva Riviera. Unfortunately, only guests of the hotel can enjoy it - this is the only closed beach on the Montenegrin coast.
Near the village there is a monastery of Praskovica, a significant part of the history of these places.
If you move further to the east, then in a few kilometers you will find yourself in the village of Blizkuce
, then you can get to two more monasteries. In the nunnery of Rustovo
, the sisters deal with translations from English and French, collect medicinal plants, weave and embroider. From the hill where the monastery is located, an amazing view bursts upon the eye. The monastery Duljevo
, located a few kilometers to the north can boast the same thing. Duljevo was built during the reign of the Serbian king Dusan in the 16th century. The main temple of Duljevo is the church of St. Stephen, famous for its ancient frescoes.
