i was in montenegro this summer and i was really impress by it, a very nice country.everything was fine there, the landscapes, the beaches, sea water and also the people.Roads were mostly fine,very pictuoresque and curvy,with LOTS of tunnels. there are no motorways, but on holidays i usually don't drive on motorways.some were u/c, as the section from savnik to zabljak.the only section that dissapointed me was the access road to ostrog monastery, which is in a very bad shape and very crowded.when u enter in montenegro u must pay a 10euro 'ecologic tax', for which u will receive a 1 year-vignette.i'll post some photos soon, i have them stored on another computer.

here are some photos made during my summer holiday in montenegro.unfortunately at the time of my trip i didn't know anything about skyscraper so i haven't take many road photos.montenegro roads are very spectacular, with many pictuoresque views, with lots of tunnels and bridges.

Nice pics, panda80! The trucks passing remind me of trucks and buses passing each other in the town centre of my town, during the morning rush hour

I read there is a vignette required for Montenegro? How do you get it? At border stations? Is it needed for the entire road network in this country?

Green-Tax Ranges From Euro 10 to 150
2008-06-06 15:30:31

As of 15 June, More than 100 Employees will Start Charging Obligatory Compensations for the Pollution of the Environment

Podgorica – All vehicle owners in the territory of Montenegro would have to pay environmental tax as of 15 June. This tax will be valid for a year and the funds collected would be used to resolve environmental problems.
.
The move is based on government’s Decree on the changes and additions to the Decree on the amounts, calculations and payments for the pollution of the environment.

According to this Decree, the transportation vehicles, which have the capacity of maximum eight passengers, will be charged Euro 10, those which have more than eight passengers and weight less than five tons would pay Euro 30, while those with more than eight passengers and weight of more than five tons would pay Euro 50.

Eco-tax for the cargo vehicles which weight less than 3,5 tons would be charged with Euro 80, those with weight lower than 12 tons would pay Euro100; those heavier than 12 tons would pay Euro 150.

Domestic companies and individuals would pay for the eco-tax during the registration of their vehicles, while the foreign citizens would have to do this at border-crossings before entering Montenegrin territory. Once the payment is completed, vehicle-owners would receive a vignette (sticker) as the evidence that the eco-tax had been paid. The sticker will be valid until 14 June next year, regardless of the date of its’ issue.

According to Vijesti’s sources, Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Protection has engaged more than 100 persons, who will wear special uniforms and charge vehicles with the eco-tax at border-crossing.

Is Cyrillic common on signs? I don't think my TomTom has Montenegro covered to the detail. I can read cyrillic, but not very fast.

Everything is writen in Latin script, you don't have to worry at all. I even think that in Montenegrian they use Latin script primarily...

That ECO tax is really a good idea, it can help quite well IMO, but I guess we already pay enough, and if we introduce it in NL, really all tourists will avoid the Netherlands

My Green Card (Auto insurance) didn't have Montenegro named as a separate country, but placed it with Serbia stating: "If this box is not cancelled, this insurance is valid the republic of Montenegro and the areas of Serbia that is controlled by the Serbian government". My box wasn't cancelled, so I was technically insured in Montenegro, but not in Kosovo.

However, I heard that if Montenegro wasn't named as a separate country, this could lead to some problems at the border, so I asked my insurance if they would issue a new version of the Green Card where Montenegro is named explicitly as an individual country, and not as a footnote by Serbia.

They've responded, and I get a new Green Card asap.
