The tiny country of only 13,812 km² can be crossed in one day. Rail transport in Montenegro is not developed, there are no trains on the coast. On the other hand, the bus service is well organized. You can get to almost any part of the country by public transport. The highway network covers the whole territory of the state, so the main way to get here is by bus or car. Roads in Montenegro are of high quality, smooth, but in the mountainous areas they are sometimes difficult and even dangerous. In winter, in some areas antiskid chains are used.
Travelling around the country is most convenient from Budva. The city is located in the central area of the coastline, so the distance to the seaside borders is the same in both directions. In addition, the city is a developed transport hub. From the Budva bus station, shuttle buses and coaches run throughout Montenegro. The bus fare, depending on the distance, varies from 1 to 10 euros. You can see the hourly traffic flow from any point and buy a ticket in advance at www.busticket4.me. Remember that electronic tickets in Montenegro should be printed out. You can pay the fare at the ticket office of the station, or directly on the bus.
Coastline cities and towns are small, so there are no city buses there. You can go across the towns on foot or by taxi. The price per kilometer in taxi is about 1 euro, the pick-up fare is 1 euro as well. The cost of intercity transportation is the same. For example, a transfer from Budva to the Tivat airport will cost at least 20 euros. There is also a car rent. For a day of rent, the average 20-30 euros is taken in off-season and 40-60 euros in the midst of summer holidays. The traffic is right-hand. Locals drive carefully, but they are not so careful when parking.
There are few parking spaces in the cities, and many of them are paid. It is customary to leave cars anywhere, including sidewalks. A fender-bender with a neighboring car in the parking lot is not a rare occasion. Not to damage a rent car, it is better to use paid parking spaces. The cost of services is 0.5-1 euros. You can take a train from Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro, to Niksic, Bijelo Polje, or Bar. Maritime transport is represented by a ferry line and a ship in the Bay of Kotor. The ferry transports people and cars between the villages of Lepetan and Kamenari, thus reducing the distance from Tivat to Herceg Novi by 30 km. The ship plies between the ports of Tivat and Herceg Novi.
