The Balkans Came Calling: Montenegro and Serbia, The Kids Edition

Montenegro and Serbia with kids

“It is stunning”, he said. “You must go.”

This was a conversation I had with my brother in law many years ago as we sat in his London apartment and pored over his albums of beautiful photos of his time visiting Montenegro. Quite honestly, I didn’t know much about the country until then. It wasn’t in the limelight as a must-visit destination by the masses. But here I was with a human rights lawyer, who was working in the region, and he highly recommended this slightly offbeat country to visit. So, this year, we decided to visit.

My sister and family were visiting us in London anyways, so we decided to split the time and head to the Balkan side. We combined Serbia and Montenegro, for a bit over a week, and it was enough time for us. It was a good group too – two sets of parents, who LOVE to eat, explore new places, and are relatively chilled out. And three children,
Little I, my niece (3yrs), Little M, my daughter (2 yrs), and Little R, my nephew (8yrs).

I was a bit concerned initially, as Montenegro is known for its mountainous landscapes, and so I wondered if it would be comfortable with kids, but I have to say that it is exactly the openness and ease of just being in the outdoors that made it all so easy. So much space, that’s all they want. We did walk a fair amount (stroller came in big use), and we also used car hires to visit places as it was the easiest and convenient option with kids. It
allowed us the flexibility to do as we please.
