hi I have a question about the walk from podgorica airport to the train station. You are writing it's 1km which is fine with me but is there any civilised way to walk this distance? I am looking at google maps and there are no sidewalks at all, the photos are very old, from 2016 so I understand it may have improved by now.

Is there any path to walk safely, any road signs? Thanks a lot
