Anna Everywhere: Living in Montenegro As a Digital

ana2


Hi, I'm Anna!

I'm a Polish-born citizen of the world. At 20, I embarked on a mission to see the world while building my career through studying and working abroad. Now, over a decade later, I'm a successful digital nomad who visited over 100 countries on 7 continents and lived in 8 countries. On top of traveling with kids and cat. It's my mission to teach YOU how can you turn YOUR dreams of travel and career, into reality.

I want to show that you don't have to be ultra rich or have a travel partner to do it!




Not many folks think about Montenegro as a country where they could possibly live in as digital nomads or expats. And why would they do it at all, right?

Life in Montenegro though can become quite an experience. Its tiny size and convenient location help to discover the entire Balkan Peninsula. Relatively low prices help to have a comfortable life. And an abundance of natural beauties can surprise the most demanding traveler.

I have visited Montenegro for the first time 9 years ago. A short two weeks visit was not enough, so I set a goal to return. And I did, but not as a tourist. I came here as a digital nomad. 


Cost of Living in Montenegro

Montenegro is one of those Balkan countries where prices greatly depend on a season. Life can be pretty cheap here only if you plan to stay from October to May. From June to the end of September prices for rent always skyrocket and there is no way to negotiate with a landlord. Just for the high season alone, you may end up paying the same amount of money as you would pay for the entire low season...

During the low season, a price for a nice furnished studio will be between 300-350 euros, one bedroom apartment goes for about 450 euros, excluding utilities. Those usually cost between 30 and 50 euros on average, depending on usage. In summertime and early fall, the same flat costs between 50 and 75 euros per night, making you overpay immensely.


Best Cities to Live in Montenegro for Digital Nomads

Since the country is small, there are not a lot of options to choose from. The best places for digital nomads would be along the coast or around Kotor Bay because they are more vibrant and have more to offer.

Kotor is one of the most expensive places and in summer it gets incredibly busy. Nearby Dobrota and Donji Stoliv are excellent choices for those who would love to be closer to fjords and in peace and quiet at the same time. Although there, you would want to have a car to feel more comfortable.

Tivat, on another side of the Bay, is a wonderful option too, offering access to the sea. Ulcinj, on the border with Albania, is dirty and away from everything. Podgorica as a capital and as the largest city in Montenegro is rather plain.

A lot of Russian speaking digital nomads choose Budva and Bar as their base cities... 


Other Facts About Montenegro

Montenegro is a wonderful country for digital nomads but mainly for those who love nature. If you are a city and party person, you will be bored here. After the tourist season is over, most of the vendors are gone, business are closed and not much is left to do except spending time in nature. The option is to explore the country's amazing mountains, canyons, gorges, and lakes. There are a lot of them and they all are so different and beautiful. But if you are not a nature person, it won't matter and you'll get bored quickly...
