Petrovac is a small town in the municipality of Budva with a 600m long urban beach. There are also two islands nearby, Katic and St. Sunday. Located between Budva and Bar with only a handful of historic buildings – the 16th century Venetian fortress, Kastel Lastva, among them – Petrovac boasts an attractive waterfront promenade, clear blue water, the aforementioned sandy beach and plenty of sunlight. With a direct road through the mountains to Podgorica, this summer holiday spot is the destination of choice for weekend sea worshippers from the capital. More laid back when compared to party town Budva, it still draws a young, fun crowd.
Based on archaeological findings the site of Petrovac was a settlement during Roman times. It was first mentioned in the ‘Chronicle Dukljanina pop’ from the 12th century under the name Lastva. The name Petrovac, was given after World War II by King Peter Karadjordjevic.
