Like every country in the world, tourism in Montenegro as well is hit by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, Montenegro was the first country in the world to be marked as a „corona free country“ for some time. During the last summer, the situation was very good, but is it safe to travel to Montenegro now, after the winter wave of the COVID-19 pandemic?
No one can guarantee your safety from COVID-19 in any country, so from my perspective, it is very safe to travel in Montenegro right now.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to get travel insurance and check it provides sufficient cover.
Booking Airplane Tickets In Advance
Most of the European and Russian airplane companies still operating on Montenegro airports in Podgorica and Tivat. So, yes, booking tickets in advance at these times is challenging. But, many tourists are still coming to Montenegro. Companies like Ryanair, Wizzair, Austrian Airlines, Montenegro Airlines, Air Serbia, Turkish Airlines, and many others are fighting or plan to start their flights from the middle of December.
Renting a car in Montenegro now is cheap
Now it’s an offseason time, maybe the best time to book a car if you are planning to move around Montenegro with a car. It’s much cheaper than in spring or summer.
Given how little Montenegro is, these are truly indeed the very same. In this way, it truly relies upon what sort of roads you’ll be utilizing. There are no toll costs in Montenegro, so it doesn’t make a difference in which course you take. Be that as it may, the more rough the streets, the harder you’ll need your vehicle to be. So, I highly recommend to rent a car in Montenegro at the airports Podgorica or Tivat.
In case you’re adhering to the fundamental streets and the city roads, an economy vehicle is fine and will likewise set aside some cash. In case you’re going outside of what might be expected, consider a bigger vehicle with a greater fuel tank, more cogwheels, and space to convey your baggage.
What To See In Montenegro
Kotor has made a stop between the dark mountains and the ocean and hidden its life behind the high and wide bulwarks. Its ramparts appear to have been forever developing stone ringlets along the slope, up to the old stronghold that disregards the town.
It is an emotional town where the current lives in the labyrinth of middle age chapels, houses of prayer, Venetian castles, and columns. Kotor is comprised of differentiations – the old squares with present-day bistros, the hints of melody and unrecorded music, the reverberation of the strides down the restricted cobblestone back streets, and the languid murmur of felines lying under the galleries with created iron railings, adorned with petunias.
Extending along the focal Montenegrin coastline with Budva as its anchor city, the Budva Riveria is a blistering summer seashore objective for local people and sightseers the same. The seashores here are a blend of sand and rocks, upheld by the reasonable, turquoise, and greenish-blue tints of the Adriatic Sea on one side and emotional mountains on the other.
There are various top quality seashores along the Riviera, including Mogren Beach, which is the nearest to Old Town Budva at simply a five-minute stroll along a coastline pathway from town. The seashores along the Budva Riviera are likewise fixed with cafés with open-air seating.
Lake Skadar, the biggest Lake in Montenegro
Situated on the Montenegrin outskirt with Albania, Lake Skadar is another in the long queue of capturing Balkan lakes. It additionally turns out to be the biggest in the district, a huge territory of serene excellence and certifiable harmony. 66% of the lake lies in Montenegro, and on occasion, it seems similar to a world inside itself. The story goes that the lake was made with the tears of the pixie, and we see no motivation to question the legitimacy of that guarantee.
Tara River Canyon
The Balkans is brimming with Europe’s most stunning outskirts, and the one among Montenegro and Bosnia doesn’t frustrate. The Tara River Canyon gives the energy, a bewildering bit of nature that plunges 1,300 meters down to the waterway. The water itself isn’t normal for the volatile pictures drawn up by youngsters, a bluer-than-blue stream that sees its excellence intensified by the thick woods that fix it in. Incredible.
