Transport from Podgorica airport to Kotor harbour

by Sevenoaks2

What is the best way to get from Podgorica airport to Kotor harbour? How much would a taxi cost and how long would it take? Are there any buses from the airport?

Thanks

there are plenty buses daily, (12)from Podgorica to Kotor. Bus ride last about 40-50minutes and is relatively cheap.
No need of taxi and is painfully expensive (last year was 64 Euros one way)
Kotor Harbour is 15min walk from the center of town (old town) and is very easy to access..
Good luck

This really depends on the time of your airplane arrives. Taxi will be brutally expensive - it's not a short distance. There are several busses running along the coast, some travel as north at Dubrovnik.

May I ask: why do you fly to Podgorica after all? It's not a convenient gateway. Going from Belgrade by overnight train to Bar is not just much cheaper - it's more convenient, too. If insisting on flying: Tivat is a popular airport and it's closer.

If you already have the tickets: get to the Podgorica downtown to the bus station.

The bus schedule of the Podgorica bus station is here:

There are also numerous local trains running between Podgorica and Bar.

My uneducated guess is that the bus to Igalo departing 18:30, arriving Kotor 20:45 will be probably good.

Otherwise - a much better experience - fly to Belgrade, go by overnight train from Belgrade to Bar and catch a bus departing Bar at 9:00, arriving Kotor 10:45.

Since the trains can be late, I would chose the train 1139 departing the NOVI BEOGRAD (not the Belgrade main!) station at 21:06, arriving Bar 7:14 in the morning.

If worried or preferring busses - same bus which departs Bar at 9:00 is coming from Belgrade, departing Belgrade main bus station 23:00 and as said, it would arrive Kotor 10:45.

Thank you for your help but I have made a mistake, it is acrually Tivat airport that we are travelling to!! My apologies.

Can you tell me the options for transferring from Tivat airport to Kotor or Budva and how much they would cost?

I have found a couple of taxi companies online but they are quoting 66euros one way which seems really expensive for 8km!!?

Long-distance bus terminal of Tivat:

But as you may notice, the Tivat-Kotor is only 15 minutes by bus. I am sure, there is local transportation and even taxi won't be that much.

Tivat is on a smalll peninsula dividing the Adriatic from Kotor Bay. It is about 15km from Kotor if that.there are regular buses from Tivat Airport to Kotor town.

Travel Tips for Kotor

Lovely details

by TheWanderingCamel

As always, it's the decorative details I love about a city like Kotor.

Some are old - the charming vignette of the Virgin and Child with St Tryphon and St Bernard in the vaulted passage of the main gate;St Tryphon holds the city in his hands whilst St Bernard displays the Host, dates back to the 15th century.

Some are very new - the bronze doors on St Mary of the River that depict the life of little St Ozana whose body lies within.

A rose window the only adornment on the simple stone facade of St Clare's Franciscan Church.

A glittering mosaic of St Nicholas keeping alive the Byzantine origins and traditions of the Serbian Orthodox church.

And for MrL - whose eagle eyes never miss one - the winged Lion of St Mark, symbol of Venice. (and why this lion? In the best tradition of appropriating bits of saints, Venetian sailors stole the body of St Mark from its tomb in Alexandria and took it back to Venice - not the best way I'd have thought to ensure a saint's protection for your city. In the same way, the Turkish St Nicholas ended up in Bari, Italy. At least Kotor's protector, St Tryphon came to the city as a gift and not as some grave robber's trophy!)

Kotor's Animal Residents

by Iteris

Similar to many continental European countries there a quite a few dogs and cats that seem to be roaming about and sleeping in the streets. This is quite true in Kotor's old walled town too. You will see dogs trotting around and sleeping in a patch of sun or in a doorway quite contently, and plenty of cats, some which will stop at your dinner table and watch you eat, but they are no threat and they just go about their business like everyone else.

Venetian style

by DPando

The old town is quite impressing crowded by cats (more than people in october) in every corner.. i supposed that it was build in venetian style as other places in Croatia, (looked similar) i fancied imagine how life went on for people who inhabited here.. the fortress was terrific and a excellent way to resolve problems with other comunities who wished conquer the area
Old town is crowded by little churches other huges and small terraces restaurants, some museum and above all buildings like the Barcelona gothic quarter.. narrow alleys and wide squares as a meeting point ( so similar to Split romanic old town)

Cruising the Bay

by sandysmith

Crusing the Bay was a lovely, lazy, sun soaking way to see the beautiful Bay of Kotor.
There are tiny little island dotted along it with cute churches on them and not a lot else!
Great for reflection pictures of course ;-)

terraces with view

by Aurorae

Imagine having a meal every day on this balcony. Well, this is what I did! :) Likewise, you are very likely to have the opportunity to have your meals in such a pleasant surrounding if you stay at some of the shore houses, and they are scatterred around everywhere!!!
