Is Montenegro good for solo travel?

Safety:

Safety:Safe

Montenegro generally offers a safe environment for solo female travelers, with friendly locals and well-established tourist infrastructure. However, like any place in the world, it is advised to maintain alertness, especially during late hours. Basic precautions like not walking alone in desolate areas and securing your belongings can help ensure a smooth experience. It's also worth mentioning that few locals might not speak fluent English so learning a bit of local language might come handy.
Transport:

Transport:Easy

Travelling around Montenegro is relatively easy. The country is small, thus most of the attractions are within a short distance. The local buses connecting towns and cities run frequently. However, tours to major sights may need to be arranged separately as public transport to these locations can be limited. Major cities are safe, pedestrian-friendly and are easy to navigate. While English is not widely spoken, locals are warm and often go out of their way to assist.
Things to do:

Things to do:Interesting

Montenegro offers a rich mix of cultural and outdoor activities. Its stunning nature, including mountains, beaches, and lakes, provides plenty of opportunities for hiking, swimming, boating, and exploring. The historic cities are packed with unique architecture, charming streets, and museums. The local cuisine and wineries are also a delight. However, depending on personal interests, some travelers may find the available activities somewhat limited.
Food:

Food:Above average

The food in Montenegro is a delightful blend of Italian, Mediterranean, and Balkan influences. It offers a variety of options from locally sourced seafood, award-winning prosciutto, hearty meat stews to fresh organic vegetables. Dairy products and homemade wine are also highlights of their cuisine. However, it might be a bit less appealing for vegetarians or those seeking non-European cuisines as the choices are comparatively limited in that aspect.
Budget:

Budget:Affordable

Montenegro is quite budget-friendly for travelers. Accommodation, food, and activities are reasonably priced, making it a great destination for those trying to keep their travel costs low. Public transportation and locally sourced meals are particularly affordable, allowing for a more immersive experience without a high price tag. However, some tourist hotspots may have higher prices, as with any destination.

Solo travel experience

Montenegro stole my heart and I didn't want to leave. I spent 3 days, splitting time between Budva, Kotor, and Perast. Budva wins everything. It was breathtaking and I enjoyed every moment spent there. Kotor was fine, and Perast was also great and peaceful.

Solo travel experience

Montenegro is stunning and still even more wild. There are no crowds (even in the most popular city, Kotor, it is manageable). Hotels, restaurants and tours are really affordable, much cheaper than in Croatia. The coastline is mainly rocky, but the water is beautiful. Amazing views, safety and incredible food. However, in terms of nightlife, I felt disappointed.

Solo travel experience

Kotor was absolutely my favorite place, it literally swept me off my feet. I visited Zagreb, Split, Herceg Novi (it wasn't my favorite place, very beautiful, but not much to do), Kotor and Budva - I regret not skipping Budva and spending more time in Kotor, because I liked it so much there.

Solo travel experience

I have been to Montenegro several times, it's very safe there, and the locals are very helpful. I liked Kotor, Perast and Tivat. I didn't enjoy Budva and Bar (a bit dirty and too touristy). Also, Podgorica is nothing special, the seaside towns are much prettier.

Solo travel experience

Montenegro is a great country for solo travelers. I was there in February. It was off-season and a bit quiet, I didn't meet too many people. I used couch-surfing a few times, so I met people in this way. In Kotor, I stayed at the Old Town hostel. There were a few guests at the hostel. The staff was also very friendly and eager to chat. The weather was very variable, there was some snow, but there were also really nice and sunny days. I recommend skipping Podgorica, it is the most boring capital in Europe.

Solo travel experience

I loved my time in Montenegro last year. I liked all the cities along the coast: Budva, Tivat and Herceg Novi. Without a car, it was difficult for me to get around. Bus services are unreliable and it takes a lot of time to get anywhere. I recommend visiting Lake Skadar, Sveti Stefan and exploring the old towns.
