Getting to Montenegro

Whether you choose to fly, train, ferry, bus or drive, it’s not difficult to get to Montenegro these days. New routes – including those served by low-cost carriers – are continually being added to the busy timetable at the country’s two airports. It’s also possible to make your way from neighbouring countries, especially Croatia. Dubrovnik’s airport is very close to the border and the beautiful city makes an impressive starting point to a Montenegro holiday. Flights, cars and tours can be booked online at www.lonelyplanet.com/bookings.

Getting around Montenegro

Bus Buses link all major towns and are affordable, reliable and reasonably comfortable.

Car While you can get to many places by bus, hiring a car will give you freedom to explore some of Montenegro's scenic back roads. Some of these are extremely narrow and cling to the sides of canyons, so it may not suit the inexperienced or faint-hearted.

Train Trains are cheap but the network is limited and many carriages are old and can get hot. The main line links Bar, Virpazar, Podgorica, Kolašin, Mojkovac and Bijelo Polje, and there's a second line from Podgorica to Danilovgrad and Nikšić.
