Montenegro Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Montenegro
Hello and welcome to our Montenegro travel blog. You will find all our Montenegro blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Montenegro travel blog because you are considering a visit to the Balkans, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Montenegro. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Montenegro.
Montenegro is so much more than Kotor. While many visitors focus their time on Kotor, don’t forget the rest of the country. Although we will concede that the capital, Podgorica, is one of the most boring we have ever visited!
Our Montenegro blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
