Petrovac is a town on the Budva Riviera, originally called Kastel Lastva named after the Castello fortress built in the 16th century. In 1902 in Petrovac were discovered late antique mosaics. The city is surrounded by Monasteries Re┼żevici, Gradiste, Katic and Sv Nedelja (St. Sunday), and there are Churches of St. Toma (Thomas) and St. Ilija (Elias) from the 14th century.
