Montenegro :: Links
The sites listed on this page are specifically about Montenegro. Although tourism is important to Montenegro's economy the focus seems to be very much on package tours - information for independent travellers is not always easy to get hold of. Many of the more general sites listed in the Overview of the Balkans are also useful for planning a trip to Montenegro.
A visually appealing site, with plenty of photos and suggested destinations, and more limited practical information.
Another general tourist guide, a bit more commercially oriented than Visit Montenegro.
Online guides to the sights of Podgorica (such as they are) and Kotor.
Information about Durmitor National Park and Žabljak mountain resort.
Detailed information about the summits, passes, and lakes of the Durmitor massif, with descriptions of the most important hiking routes and lots of great photos - an excellent resource if you intend to hike in Durmitor and want to do some advance planning. Some of Montenegro's other mountain ranges are also covered on Summitpost.
Includes a collection of large scale topographic maps covering many of Montenegro's mountain ranges.
Information and guided tours on the Coastal Transversal and other trails in Montenegro.
Information about towns on the coast of Montenegro.
Transport and Practicalities
Montenegro doesn't have a railway network so much as a railway line; timetable details are on this site.
It's not easy to get reliable information about buses in Montenegro online. Nikšič seems to be the only bus station with its own web site. The other links above are to pages that form part of larger sites; there is no indication of when they were last updated. They probably give a good indication of the frequency of services on various routes, but don't stake your life on a particular bus actually existing. Note that "polasci (iz)" means "departures (from)". See the Croatia links page for services from Dubrovnik to Montenegro.
Ferries from Bar to Italy (Bari and Ancona).
Flight timetables ("Red Letenja") for both Podgorica and Tivat airports, in Serbian only.
The "Consular Affairs" section has (brief) information about entry requirements.
