- Direct flights in the summer season to Montenegro from Moscow (who would doubt), St. Petersburg and Samara. Fly around Victory, S7, Aeroflot, Montenegro Airlines and Ural Airlines.
- Tickets: 15 000 – 25 000 rubles per person.
It is believed that an independent holiday in Montenegro flies into a penny just because of the air tickets – one click, and half the budget is not it happened. BUT! Such a great airline like Serbian The airline periodically launches unseen stock generosity – flights from Moscow for 12 000 rubles! Transplant in Belgrade (bezviz, you can walk), and then delivered to Podgorica (second airport in Montenegro).

Food prices in Montenegro
A country in which no one will go hungry, even with the minimum amount of funds! But still study prices in Montenegro on food in 2019.
First, let’s deal with catering.
- Fast food in Montenegro comes down to street Mechek hamburgers. This is delicious! Getting ready such a burger according to the constructor principle: there is a huge cutlet in the set (pleskavitsa) or fried sausages (chevapchichi), a fresh roll and such the same fresh kaymak (something between a thick cream and cream cheese). Choose the rest yourself: pickles, hot sauce, vegetables. Even an adult male is far from being subtle build, checked! Fixed price: € 2.5 ≈ 185 rubles.
Don’t even try to search for McDonald’s! He is. But with a hamburger from the street stall not a single Big Mac compares. And they cost about the same.

The same prices in cafes serving the beaches: you make an order, you go lying on the bed, and the waiter brings everything to readiness. By the way we took for two, and ate three of us: with one small portion we had one portion, they are really big!
- If the soul wants something more refined, welcome to a restaurant. In such institutions, our account for three ranged from € 40 ≈ 3000 rubles. Here will offer traditional spit-up (or kebab, as often mentioned in the menu) in different variations, soups and salads, as well as seafood.

You will be in Herceg Novi, be sure to visit the restaurant “Three Lindens “, you will not regret it! It is located on the main descent from the Old Cities to the sea. You can’t pass by. You can ask the locals. Going to a restaurant, do not forget to change clothes. Your clothes can be easy (shorts are allowed), but not the beach.

Prices for hotels in Montenegro
The cost of rest in Montenegro depends on where located under the sun, chosen for a specific holidays
➢ St. Stephen’s Island – luxury rest.
➢ Budva, Becici, Herceg Novi or Petrovac are quite acceptable middling, you can find housing there for a very adequate money.
➢ Kotor – too picturesque to offer options inexpensive, but the neighboring (and beach) Kindness helps out.
➢ Ulcinj, due to its remoteness – budget, cheap there relatively more “center” resorts.
Logically, prices depend on the distance to the beach: the closer the sea, the more expensive accommodation. On the other hand, there is noisy, tourists walk till the morning (and maybe not only tourists). Season for recreation also affects the “pricing” of hotels. Summer is more expensive in early spring or late autumn, when the weather is no longer the same – cheaper.
In Montenegro, the hotel business is very actively developing. Absolutely all local residents are involved in advertising. For example, in Budva not only guides, but also ordinary sellers in stores with pride talk about the hotel, which made a movie about James Bond! Spoiler: in fact, “James Bond: Casino Royale” was filmed in Karlovy Vary, from the Montenegrin “Splendid” in the film only title.
In general, in the season the balance of prices for hotels next (price is for a double room, for one night, without supply):
|Hotel category||Prices in rubles|
|Guest house (room in the house with shared kitchen)||from 1800|
|Hotel 3 *||from 2200|
|Hotel 4 *||from 3000|
|Hotel 5 *||from 10 000|

If you monitor the situation in advance, you can get to super offers of type – 4 stars for 1300 rubles. 5 * hotels in Montenegro can be counted on the fingers. Moreover, half of They are located in non-dormant Kotor and Tivat.
I can say that my first stay in a 3 * hotel (found on Booking) we were very pleased. Service and kitchen were on top (they only took breakfasts), and the rest didn’t worry us much: between beach and excursions, we dropped into the hotel just to change clothes.
The cost of renting an apartment
On the next trip I also took shelter off the coast, but already private sector. Firstly, the choice is more, secondly, it is cheaper. Booked on Airbnb – an international private rental service. housing. Under the link you will get a discount of 2100 rubles for the first booking The average price tag for apartments ranges from 2000 to 7000 rubles per day.
Word of the editor. All our cool apartments in Budva, Kotor and Becici (by the sea) cost 1,100 rubles / night per person. There are three of us, we have created three accounts on Airbnb – and saved 6300 rubles?
In general, in Montenegro, it seems that you can do not book anything. And on arrival, go to the first one you like. house with a sign SOBE and find shelter there. Rent everything: and apartments in apartment buildings, and whole mansions with pools. it great news (and maybe not news) for those who prefer independence.
Prices for transport in Montenegro
Tivat Airport is the most inconvenient airport for a traveler! If with rest on the voucher everything is clear (taken by bus), then independent will have to:
- Or 3 kilometers on foot to stomp to the bus station to sit down on city bus
- Or take a local taxi – 40-50 euros to Budva!
The same story with and Podgorica airport. But there is one way to get is optimal in terms of convenience and money. This is a transfer from KiwiTaxi – the driver will come for you, meet you at the airport with a sign that will take you to any resort to the door hotel / apartment.
Word of the editor. We tried KiwiTaxi in Athens with a 12-hour transplant. It turned out very comfortable and not lost extra 2 hours to get from the airport by bus. Therefore, in August from Podgorica to Budva, we also ordered KiwiTaxi – 38 euros for the car.
By the city.
On vacation for travel, we used a city bus or Taxi. But more often the last. Moreover, at prices it comes out not so and blatant bourgeois.
Judge for yourself:
- Travel by public transport: € 1 ≈ 74 rubles per person
- Taxi: € 1 ≈ 74 rubles per 1 km
We had € 3.5 ≈ 260 rubles for the whole family, but the car filed there and then, as we needed. Of course it important when to go close. We called cars through our beautiful hostess. Just called her, said where and when to us need a taxi and all. You can do it yourself, previously recognizing the phone number. Dispatchers understand Russian well.
In general, in Montenegro there is no language barrier: Montenegrin language is very similar to Russian, all inscriptions and signs translated into Russian. But even if not, their meaning can be intuitive. understand (they have a native alphabet, Cyrillic).
You must call a taxi, do not get into an empty car! The taxi driver will turn on the double counter.
