[SONICA 2011 - LOCATION]
Our new venue is only 80km from Montenegrin capital Podgorica, which is where the main airport is located and only 20km from Montenegrin port of Bar. From the airport or from the port you can also easy rent a car or get a taxi. Prices are affordable and fair even for long routes.
Montenegro's currency is Euro , so you won't need to change your money and as in all developing countries you can easily find cash-machines, banks, hotels and all regular facilities. Many hotels, bungalows, apartments or simple rooms are available around the festival area, but we really suggest you to start checking on time as the festival period is at the start of the summer season, so there will be a large influx of tourists looking to stay on the beautiful Montenegrin coastal zone.
[SONICA 2011 TRANSPORT]
The venue is easily to reach by any kind of transport and here are the best ways to get to the festival:
As this side of Adriatic coast has became very popular with tourism in last few years, we recommend you book your flights in advance in order to get the best possible fares. If you are not able to find affordable fares with Montenegro Airlines, we suggest you to check Malev Hungarian Airlines or Croatia Airlines for direct flights to Podgorica from the main European capitals.
To give you an idea, these are the fares (including taxes) if booking a flight 2 months in advance:
Budapest (for all goers to Ozora): 90,00 / 1h time flight
