Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Montenegro is most known for its natural beauty from its awe-inspiring coastline on the Adriatic to its crystal inland lakes and rivers and stunning mountain ranges. The country is a playground for those who love the outdoors – an ideal setting for western expats who love to hike, backpack, camp, sail or hang out on the beach. Of course, most internationals live in the capital city of Podgorica which is famous for its theaters and parks. While Montenegro is safe and its people friendly, shopping retail and navigating throughout the country is not always easy for the visitor. While many youth speak English, most of the adults do not. An expat would be wise to learn a bit of Serbian or Montenegrin.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Montenegro is good on the western expatriate’s budget. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Montenegro is well below the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods in services in Montenegro such as a housing accommodation and furnishings,transport, healthcare, an Internet plan, groceries, restaurant meals, alcohol and local retail recreation. Assuming that a teaching expat negotiates a fair remuneration with their new international school employer, they should be able to both live comfortably in Montenegro (fully exploiting all the wonderful things that it has to offer) as well as save some money.
