I have not "trekked" through the Balkans but I have cycled unaccompanied with no support through Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania and Macedonia and found the people very friendly and helpful and the overall experience 'safe'. Although my description of safe may differ from yours. I stayed in a hostel/b&b for one night in Podgorica but the rest of ...

You should go. I've never been to Montenegro, but I have been to various places in Dalmatia, and I have spent a good deal of time in and around Sarajevo, where my mother in law lives. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "trekking" (and I have no idea what you mean by "integrist"). Land mines are a problem in Bosnia, but the problem is dwindling, thanks ...

While as you've mentioned, Budva has the main tourist areas with nice beaches and so on, the Bay of Kotor is considered one of the most beautiful bays in Europe, and has the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Perast and Kotor, plus other typically Mediterranean towns. Kotor especially looks spectacular with the deepest natural fjord in the entire Mediterranean. ...

Ulcinj county has the best beaches in Montenegro. The good beaches are several km outside the city towards the Albanian border. Local transport should be frequent during the day, and you can stay either at the beach or in the Ulcinj city. Velika Plaza (Large Beach) is 10km long, uncrowded with nice sand and a long shallow part. Ada Bojana is an island at a ...

1) You should have no problems crossing from Bosnia and Hercegovina to Montenegro and on into Kosovo. The only proplematic part is the Serbian-Kosovo border. It seems the best way to travel to/from Serbia is to use your EU identity card, rather than your passport because they can not stamp it. 2) There is a direct bus from Sarajevo to Pristina, from ...

Also, for people who would like to see UNESCO World Heritage Site Kotor Old Town and at same time would like to be at a nice beach, I would suggest beach Plavi Horizonti that is 8km from Kotor and usually people from Kotor and Tivat visit this beach, because of its nice sand and beautiful nature. It is a famous place among people that want to get away from ...

Kotor will be pretty full in August. Not saying you wont find anything but you might have to pay more for a still free (and possible luxury) room or get whatever is left. For Žabljak: There are many accomendations in its generally less crowded there. Also its easier to get from accommodation to accomodation when searching for free rooms as there are usually ...

I don't think there is anything specific for this length of stay other than figuring out where the most local classified ads are (Kijiji, Craigslist, something local) and trying to arrange something directly. As far as Airbnb goes, they have a specific site airbnb.com/sublets for this term of stay, advantage of using this over regular search tool is that it ...

My limited experience of Albania is also very dated (15 years) but may be better than nothing. Then, south of Tirana might as well have been the moon, as far as facilities and terrain were concerned. Private ownership of cars had only been allowed since 1991, at which time there were a mere 6,000 or so in the country. While roads in Tirana were quite ...

I can at least partly answer your question by quoting from my Lonely planet: International buses serve much of Europe, including Skopje, Macedonia (€5, 1½ hours), Tirana, Albania (€35, 10 hours), Istanbul, Turkey (€40, 20 hours), and Sarajevo, Bosnia and Hercegovina (€30, 10 hours). And: It's unwise to bring Serbian-plated cars into Kosovo. ...

In general car hires in europe will let you cross country lines, at least within the EU (which unfortunatley Montenegro is not). However, you should confirm this with the hire company - either through reading policies on their website, or by asking them. You've got two issues to be concerned with - firstly whether the hire company's insurance applies once ...

Borrowing from one of my answers on a similar question: Long-term rentals everywhere around the world typically require the tenant to prove the ability to pay the current and every future month rent. This is done by showing salary slips (usually the last 3 in France), payment receipts from previous rental agreements, a reference letter, and/or binding ...
