The Old Town, Ulcinj

(3.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
The Old Town is one of the oldest urban architectural complexes along the Adriatic Sea. Originally built by the Illyrians, it was restored many times during its history by the Byzantines, Venetians, and Ottomans. Stroll down the steep, cobblestone streets and pass by or visit souvenir shops, barber shops, and stores that emanate the spirit of the old Orient. A former church and mosque on the upper plateau of the fortress houses the city museum. Try the local lemonade or Turkish coffee at one of the many cafes. Attractions include the foundations of a 12th-century church, a Turkish powder magazine, a Venetian palace, and the Square of Cervantes, once known as the slave square. Don Quixote's mistress Dulcinea was named after the city of Ulcinj, where the novelist was imprisoned for five years. Work out when and for how long to visit The Old Town and other Ulcinj attractions using our handy Ulcinj tour planner.

  • A romantic place with a unique history. Now in the old city-restaurants, mini-hotels and apartments in scenic zone, neighboring with the ruins and places of construction. And when here in the ancient square sold slaves, where now the Museum-Magazine-held captives. Pirate past in Ulcinj at every step. Wonderful destinations for couples and photo shoots.

  • The view is great, but the cleanliness is lacking, was a refrigerator cast on the shore, a mountain of garbage. 
  • Visited this place purposely under travel to Montenegro. The Township is quite colorful, there are beautiful views, enjoyed the local Museum, entrance 2 euro, in my opinion, there are audio guides. I liked that this place still inhabited, there are 4 small and this gives the old town and the fortress of special, not a museum. Rocked the cats that like mountain goats live in the crevices of rocks and fearlessly jump over the precipice.
