Ulcinj

Ulcinj is the southernmost town on the Montenegrin coast. "The municipality stretches over an almost 13 kilometer long sand beach, the island of Ada, and along the second leg of the Bojana River, which serves also as the Albanian border. Here the orient meets the occident. On the southern side of the town lays the Ratislava peninsula with the main tourist hotels.

Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Mongols, Turks and pirates Ulcinj had many rulers. The town is among the oldest in Montenegro. Historians date its founding back more than 2500 years. Excavations unearthed findings originating from the 5th century B.C. Each ruling culture added something unique to the architecture. The Turks, who took over in 1571, are mostly responsible for the oriental look. They protected the town with a fortress, constructed mosques and developed the winding roads.
