Discover Montenegro: Your Affordable and Less Crowded Alternative to Croatia

As summer approaches, many travelers are in search of a new and exciting destination to explore. If you’ve been a long-time fan of Croatia but find yourself concerned about rising prices and overcrowded tourist spots, consider nearby Montenegro as a fantastic alternative. Here are five compelling reasons why Montenegro should be on your travel radar:

  1. Less Crowded: While Croatia attracts a massive number of visitors, with over 15 million in 2019, Montenegro remains relatively undiscovered and significantly less crowded. You can revel in the same stunning Adriatic beaches, whether you prefer pebbly or sandy shores, without contending with the overwhelming crowds often found in Croatia. Especially if you plan your visit during the off-peak season, you’ll discover smaller, more secluded beaches where you can enjoy tranquility away from the masses.
  2. Easy Accessibility by Plane: If you’re accustomed to driving to Croatia, you’ll be delighted to learn that reaching Montenegro is equally convenient. For instance, the Čedok travel agency offers flights to Tivat, with a journey time of just an hour and a half. This saves you an entire day of travel, allowing you to start your vacation sooner.
  3. Affordable: If rising prices in Croatia have you concerned, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the affordability of Montenegro. Even along the main beach promenade in Budva, you’ll find bars and restaurants offering budget-friendly prices comparable to those in the Czech Republic. For example, you can savor cocktails like mojitos or tequila sunrises for around seven euros or 160 crowns, while shots typically cost around three euros or 70 crowns. Delicious fried calamari can be savored for approximately 13 euros or 300 crowns.
  4. Welcoming Locals: Montenegro and the Czech Republic share a historical bond, and Czech visitors are among the most beloved Slavic nationalities in Montenegro. The locals are renowned for their warmth, friendliness, helpfulness, and hospitality. Engage in various tours and activities to immerse yourself in Montenegro’s captivating history and culture, and you’ll feel right at home.
  5. Breathtaking Mountainous Inland: Montenegro boasts an abundance of lush greenery compared to the coastal regions of Croatia, with trees, groves, and forests dotting the landscape. Mountains majestically rise behind the coastal resorts, and approximately 90 percent of the country is characterized by its mountainous terrain. When you’ve had your fill of beach relaxation, venture into the inland areas, where you’ll find five national parks waiting to be explored. Among them, Durmitor National Park stands out, with its rugged charm reminiscent of the Slovenian Julian Alps or the High Tatras.

If you’re seeking a destination similar to Croatia but with fewer crowds, welcoming locals, and affordable prices, Montenegro is the ideal choice for your next vacation. Embark on an unforgettable journey, and let Montenegro’s beauty captivate your heart.
