    From the airport to the city centre by taxi

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jan 30, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The route from the airport to the city centre (Trg Republike) is said to be served by a bus of Montenegro Airlines, which meets their flights shortly after arrival and before departure.

    Unfortunately for both my flights I didn't see any bus, therfore the only option to get to town for me was a taxi. There is an official taxi rank just left of the terminal, when coming out of the building. These official taxis are of the Mercedes E-class type and the trip to town costs a fixed 15 Euro.

    By chance I saw a normal taxi near the parking lot and asked the driver to get me to town for 10 Euro, which was fine for him. For some reason he left his taxametre switched on so that I saw that a fair rate would be something between 6 and 7 Euro.

    To Podgorica by plane

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jan 30, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I flew to Podgorica from Düsseldorf in Germany and left the country on the same way with Montenegro Airlines.

    I got the best price for this return flight on http://www.ebookers.com/.

    Montenegro has two international airports: One is located in Tivat at the Bay of Kotor and the other one is in Podgorica. The latter one is called Aerodrom Podgorica and has the IATA airport code: TGD which was derived from the city's former name Titograd.

    The current passenger terminal was opened in 2006 and has all conveniences which you would expect from a modern airport.

    The airport is situated about 10 km south of Podgorica near the suburb of Golubovci. Please also read my tip "From the airport to the city centre by taxi".

    To Podgorica by bus

    by HORSCHECK Updated Jan 30, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We left Podgorica by bus to Ulcinj near the Montenegrin border to Albania. This route is served about 6 times per day and the trip takes approximately 2 hours. Tickets can be bought directly at the bus station and cost 6 Euro.

    Other destinations which are served by bus from Podgorica include Bar, Budva, Cetinje, Herceg Novi, Kolasin, Kotor, Niksic, Tivat and Zabljak.

    Podgorica's bus station can be found just in front of the train station. The city centre can be reached within 20 minutes on foot or alternatively with local bus #6.

    By bus to other destinations

    by yumyum Updated Jan 23, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a bus from Podgorica to Ulcinj. The journey took almost 2 hours and cost Euro 6.00.

    Try to sit on the right side in the driving direction. You may then see the old castle on the photo by the Lake Skadar. The journey is shortened because the bus travels through a long tunnel which crosses the coastal mountain range. On the other side of the range - sitting on the right side - you will have great views of the sea.

    There are plenty of buses from Podgorica bus station. For the timetable you need to stare at the hanging screen where the departures are constantly scrolling down. So it's not so easy to catch the times. There are various facilities at the bus station like toilets, kiosks, snack bars.

    The railway station is just a few meters from the bus station. There you can catch trains to Bar or to the north into the mountains and further to Belgrade etc.

    By plane to Podgorica

    by yumyum Updated Jan 23, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was able to fly directly from Zurich, Switzerland, to Podgorica in Montenegro with Montenegro Airlines. It's amazing that such a small country has its own airline. The plane was quite dated but the flight was very agreeable. The price was alright too for Swiss standards. I booked through ebookers Switzerland as they were a little cheaper than the airline itself.

    Flying down the Dalmatian coast and turning into Montenegro, I had a great view of the coastal mountains and Lake Skadar. Unfortunately, I didn't have a window seat.

    Podgorica airport is a small modern affair with a not so helpful information counter.

    By taxi into town

    by yumyum Written Jan 22, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is no public transport from Podgorica airport to the city center. If you are game enough for a walk (in the heat) to the railway line or the main road into town, then you can catch the occasional train or bus but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are on a desparately low budget.

    I got a taxi for the fixed price of Euro 15.00 from the official taxi stand. The thing was that there were some taxi lurking around but the drivers weren't in their cars. So I stood there a bit helpless but some man noticed me and yelled to the drivers who would take me.

    I had an uneventful comfortable journey to the Hotel Ideal.

    The other option is to prebook a taxi on a website which I would recommend if you want to go straight to another destination as it would turn out cheaper.

    not quite a taxi ;)

  • Podgorica to Prishtina

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It looks like there is only one direct bus from Podgorica to Prishtina and, yes, it is at 9 pm. Ticket price is 21 EUR. This is the link where I found this (tourist organization of Podgorica): (http://turistickaorganizacijapodgorice.blogspot.com/2009/04/autobuska-stanica.html) I don't think it will be problem to buy ticket on day of trip, but it would be good if you could go to bus station in the morning and buy it. And I can confirm that travel time can't be less than 5 hours.

    Best taxi service in town

    by MacedonianUK Updated Mar 22, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    City taxi is, by my opinion, the best Taxi service in Podgorica & cheapest.
    you can book your trip on their website or you can call. There is no problem at all. I used this service quite few times around town, and to drop me off to the Border crossing with Albania.They charge initial start fee of €2.00 and than is €0.50 for every km used. For examlpe trip one way to Budva from Podgorica will be €40.
    If you are call ind feom within Podgorica is 9711 or whitin M'gegro add 081.
    Direct tel nos if you are calling from abroad:
    00382 81 282 412

    To be updated soon with up to date info.
    Was here 9 days ago and took the 22.00
    night train to BELGRADE. Couchettes cost
    10 Euro each and good to buy in advance.
    The train comes from Bar and good if you
    want to arrive in Belgrade in the mornig.
    Bad if you want to arrive on time at 06.05
    to catch the 6.45 to Budapest because we rolled
    into Belgrade at 8 am and the next train to Budapest
    is in the evening at 22.00 arriving at Budapest Keleti
    at around 7am...

    Getting from the airport to anywhere

    by typhoidmary Written Jul 26, 2008

    At this time (2008) getting from Podgorica airport anywhere requires taking a taxi. The catch is that there are not always taxis at the airport. When you arrive, if there are no taxis you can ask the information desk to call one (if there is anyone working - late night there will not be). If there are cars, but no drivers, then go to one of the cafes. The drivers are likely sitting there. Ask the waiter who is a taxi driver. The fare to the city center is 15 euro during he day and 17 at night. If you want to hire a taxi to Budva it should be 40 euro. This is a very practical option for groups of 3-4 people.

    Few but safe train connections

    by Yiannis2000 Written Feb 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is an old and still used train line from the coast of Montenegro to Podgorica and then to Belgrade, but it runs mornings and evenings with less than confortable cars.
    Bus connections are more frequent, the scenery is still spectacular and the tickets inexpensive but avoid them if you have a weak heart:
    - We counted 56 roadside memorials dedicated to dead relatives- victims of car accidents the first hour of the trip from Podgorica to Nis...
    Travel by land is anyway the most environmentally friendly way of getting to know the world, but there are times where air travel becomes expedient. The least we can do when we do travel using such low-fare, budget schemes is to try to be accountable for the potential damage we do to the environment and compensate for the adverse effects by also buying a "climate ticket".

    Podgorica has a small International Airport.
    The most people get to Podgorica from Belgrade since there are very few international flights. Montenegro has its own flighing company : "Montenegrian Airlines". The other option is JAT ( Yugoslavian Aerotransport), The Serbian flighing company.

    Be Cautious!

    by Exp. Written Jan 26, 2003

    If coming by car, what I would not recommend if inexperienced driver, be extremely careful when driving the last part of the road (8 km). It is quite scary! Many of you would think it’s very, very, very narrow one-way road. Well, it’s not. It’s a two-way road and those who know it, might be driving a little faster. However, no accident has ever occurred at this part of the road. St. Vasilije keeps us safe.
