Stay at the Best Coworking Space in Montenegro

As you can see, there are so many exciting places to explore in this small country — which is the beauty of it. Over here, you can go from a walking tour through century-old cities to kayaking in tranquil waters in the same afternoon. Because the nation is so tiny, you can rest assured that you’ll be safe come day or night, which is always a plus for any solo traveler.

Hopefully, these coliving spaces have added a few reasons to visit Montenegro besides the attractions. There is something for everyone, from the frugal traveler to the digital nomad looking to unplug a little.

Which traveler are you, and which place is on your Montenegro bucket list?
