This week we visit: Montenegro
Montenegro is a small country in Southeastern Europe and it is generally considered to be quite safe for tourists who visit it. They are on their way to becoming a part of the European Union and the security levels in the country are enviable, indeed.
For example, crime levels are quite low in Montenegro. That being said, street crime can occur, especially in larger towns. During the summer months, areas that are frequented by tourists can be target for pick pockets and thieves. This is especially true of beaches. Because of this, you should always keep your valuables in a hotel safe when going to the beach. ATM scams are also more common in the summer months and you should be very careful with your PIN number and other details pertaining to your credit cards.
There are certain roads which can be somewhat dangerous, especially in the winter. The most obvious example of this is the road that goes along the Moraca canyon in Montenegrin inland. You should also be extra careful if you decide to visit Montenegrin mountains and hike there. They can be very dangerous if one is not very careful.
It is also a good idea to avoid the area that borders with Kosovo along the southern border.
