Virpazar is a small town on Lake Skadar in Montenegro. Its main attraction is it's proximity to the lake and as a great starting point for hiking.

Get in

You can get to Virpazar by train from either Podgorica or Bar for under 5 EUR.

See

There is a very nice abandoned castle over the city that you can hike up to. From there you will get a good view of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

Do

  • Take a taxi out to the 'beach.' There are boats that are extremely expensive 20 EUR (?), you'll be much better off haggling with a taxi car driver for 5 EUR.
  • Hitch hike or walk down the lake to the Arbnez. Expect a lot of walking and camping but this is a spectacular trip. For more information see Ulcinj.

Buy

Eat

There are several great restaurants around the town that serve fresh fish from the lake. If you are looking for an opportunity to stop being so cheap and just enjoy and good meal with some great montenegrin wine Virpazar will present you with a good opportunity.

Drink

Sleep

When you come in to town you will immediately be approached by someone from the main hotel. This person will try and hard sell you into getting a room in the hotel (for something like 40 EUR a night). Don't get sucked in, you can find accommodation a little further up in the town for under 7 EUR per night per person. The hotel restaurant is extremely expensive too.
