Since the flow of tourists decreases, accordingly, many cafes are closed, and the number of various festivals is reduced. In fact, it is in November that this amazing and picturesque country can be discovered from a completely different side.

What weather can we expect in November?
Despite the small footprint of Montenegro, the weather in November differs significantly in different areas. On the coast, there can be sun and a warm breeze, and snow – in the mountains.
In the south of the country on the coast of the Bay of Kotor, the temperature in November reaches + 16 C and +8 C at night. In Ulcinj, Bar and Budva, the weather is warmer by one degree.
The temperature of the sea is the same as that of the air, so only desperate brave souls decide to swim.
In Podgorica, the temperature is often around 21 degrees during the day, but the likelihood of rain is higher.
Therefore, when going in Montenegro in that month, do not forget to grab not only jackets and windbreakers but also lighter clothes, since the weather often pleases with sunny warm days.
In the mountains, the picture is completely different.
The temperature is below zero, the time of snowfalls begins, and ski resorts begin to receive those who want to actively relax.
