The Old Town, Ulcinj
(3.3/5 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.

  • Were in the old town of Ulcinj. Plunge into historical times, narrow streets, polished to a gloss level, everything breathes with antiquity. You can walk the whole day in the old town, enjoy, breathe with antiquity. Many café, mini hotels, wonderful scenery of the Adriatic Sea with the height of the old town. Unforgettable!

  • To get a better impression about Montenegro, visit Ulcinj with its crooked streets, mosques, old town. I like the old town, the fortress itself is impressive, beautiful views. This piece of the Muslim world in a Christian country, so visit. Note that in many jewelry shops
