Weather

Short Balkan winter is almost over, the sun shines brightly, the day lengthens, the air warms up. Nature is ready for spring, early flowers bloom, heavy rainfalls feed the earth. If you are staying on the coast, stock up with umbrellas and raincoats. In the mountains, to the delight of ski enthusiasts, it continues to snow.

Ski resorts are waiting for you

The daytime temperature at the ski resorts Žabljak and Kolašin is about 5°C (41°F), and at night the temperature drops below zero. In Budva, Ulcinj, Kotor and other seaside towns, the temperature is 10-14°C (50-57°F) during the day, and 1-3°C (34-37°F) at night. February in Montenegro is much warmer than in most parts of Europe, and this is a great time for outdoor activities and educational trips.

Recreation

Montenegrin ski centers always have enough snow. The skiing conditions here are almost identical to fancy european resorts, and the prices are much lower. The mountains are also offering other winter activities, like fishing, rafting, snowmobiling.

Snowshoeing is good for your health

Wellness centers and spas are still very busy in February, as well as shopping centers, cozy bars and restaurants. And local museums will tell you about the history and culture of Montenegro. The Bar Riviera is an interesting destination.
