Many of the country’s official public holidays are based on traditional Orthodox traditions. All holidays in Montenegro are deemed non-working days, including Orthodox religious observances.

If the first day of a two-day holiday falls on Sunday, the next two working days are observed as paid holidays. If the second day of a holidays falls on Sunday, the following working day is considered a paid holiday.

As many holidays in Montenegro last between two and three days, paid time off is allowed for the duration of the designated holiday. Additional Catholic, Muslim and Jewish holidays are also observed, depending on provisions set forth in an employment contract or union bargaining agreement.
