Greetings Some Montenegrins (especially those of Serbian heritage) engage in a three-kiss hello.
Visiting Take off your shoes when entering a home. Montenegrins are typical Slavs and are obsessed with draughts and cold extremities; they'll have slippers for you. Bring a small gift, like wine or bag of coffee.
Conversation Politics, religion, history and ethnicity can be minefields; tread cautiously.
Religion Walk backwards out of a shrine.
Personal Space Don't expect much; Montenegrins love to touch and huddle.
Dress Be modest when visiting religious buildings. Topless sunbathing is usually reserved for nudist beaches.
Eating If you're dining with locals, arrive hungry. This is a nation of feeders.
Drinking Engaging in a toast without eye contact may result in calamity, as will pouring your own rakija (fruit brandy).
