Dangers and warnings for travelers in Montenegro
Montenegro is generally a safe country. Though there is never any guarantee of safety anywhere in the world. Here are some hints about how to avoid potentially risky or dangerous situations in Montenegro:
- Be aware of your personal belongings, especially around the coast in popular tourist areas.
- Pickpockets are not uncommon, carry your money and ID in a secure location. There are a number of beggars in these areas too. While I don’t want to discourage you from giving them a couple coins if you want to, be careful about flashing your money around. Some might try to take it or send more people to beg from you.
- If you are traveling in areas along the border with Kosovo, be careful getting off the main road. There still may be unexploded land mines in this area. Also, research where you are going before hand to make sure there is no military activity in the area.
- If you do get in trouble the number for the police is 122. The emergency number is 112.
