The Old Town, Ulcinj

(3.9/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • We had out there in the middle of the day and it was a bad idea because the heat in August trying to lift. For views from the many hills. Twisting streets, what I like to do a few people (all occupied a small beach-brr!)

  • The beautiful old town with picturesque streets and views of the sea beckons you to visit. A lot of cafes, restaurants and shops with good service. Mala Plaža is crowded, with the family, we wondered, that people are willing to push here. We at the Lovac Azurina. The vehicle left parked by the hotel, Taxi cost to Rethi-kružni 4-flow,-€ and back to the same thing. We recommend that you.

  • Too bad, friendly waitress, pleasant, etc... Chocolate displayed at €1.50. "Do you want a thick chocolate or with milk?" the man at the bar asks. An of each answer. And surprise in addition € 4.50. "Why?" I ask. That milk is a new drink, but not to the card. OK it's still widely affordable compared to the french price but I hate to feel like getting scammed. Such a shame
