You have probably seen how beautiful Montenegro is. Now you are in a situation where you are planning to stay in this country for a longer period.
This decision raises many questions such as how high are utilities, prices in restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and so on.
Finding an apartment is the biggest task, especially in the summer.
Montenegro is a tourist country and most landlords are interested in renting their apartments to tourists. Due to this approach, it is hard to find an apartment where you can live for a couple of years. Therefore, be prepared to spend some time on social networks looking for an apartment, which will have an okay price.
Depending on the city, the price of the apartment is 200-300 euros per month.
Monthly utilities such as water, electricity, and internet together will be around 60 euros a month.
Prices of drinks and fast food
These prices depend on the location, but they are usually like this:
Coffee 2 euros
Beer 1.2 euros
Water 1 euro
The price of fast food is from 2 euros and up.
There are fast food shops on almost every corner so you will easily come across one of these if you are hungry.
When it comes to groceries, their prices jump when the tourist season is underway and their prices are:
Bread – 0.5 euros
Milk – 1 euro
Pasta – 1 euro package
Coffee – 5 euros / 0.5 kg
Tea – 2 euros
