Get in
==Get in==
*There are frequent buses from [[Podgorica]] that should cost under €5€6, a 2 hour ride.
*From [[Bar]] you can either take a normal bus or catch a 'combi' minibus that runs up and down the coast of Montenegro. The ride from Bar takes about half an hour.
*From [[Kosovo]] during the tourist season there are frequent buses leaving from the major cities. The price should be around €25. There are three buses per day (6am, 7pm, 9pm) each day. The first two go via Podgorica, with the last going via Shkodra, Albania. The bus via Shkodra takes approx 6-7 hours.
* From [[Albania]] there are 'combi' minibuses that come from [[Durres]] in [[Albania]] to Ulcinj, although they most likely are not official bus operations, so you'll have to do some asking around.
* There are also daily departures from [[Shkodra]] in Albania to Ulcinj(6 am and 12:30 pm). These are, in theory, well connected with Albanian 'furgons' from Tirana and Durres. It takes one 1 hour to Shkoder by "private" cab, it costs 5 euro.
==Get around==
Ulcinj is a small city, you will have no problem getting around by foot. The bus station is a good 40 minute walk from the old town of Ulcinj by the coast.

There is an old castle overlooking the sea. Stari grad (old town) is worth a visitthough sadly destroyed and not fully restored since a large earthquake in 1979.

Ulcinj is a splendid central location for exploring Montenegro's South Coast region (from Bar to Skader Lake to Ada Bojana ) and parts of Albania. The "Ulcinj" South Coast region boasts some of the most interesting adventure tour, historic tour, and eco tourtours, and vacation beach stays in all of the Adriatic.
There is are good swimming beach spots in the area, including some rocky ones in the southern part of town. The longest sandy beach in Montenegro , Velika Plaza, is located near by. At the Southern end of this 14km-long beach there is Ada Bojana[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_Bojana] , including a triangular island with very nice beaches, formed where the Bojana river meets the Adriatic Sea. The island is a favourite spot for kitesurfers and windsurfers and it has a large a nudist beach for those so inclined. There are minibuses that take you from the market on Skenderbeu Ave in Ulcinj to Velika Plaza and even to Ada Bojana (if there are at least 3 people going there). *Go for a walk after sunset when the main street fills with people promenading and taking some fresh air. It is said that some of the most beautiful girls in the Balkans can be found promenading.
* For the more adventuresome you can take the 'combi' towards the Albanian border (but not crossing it) getting off on the first road heading towards Lake Skadar near the town of Brajse. There is a small bus from Brajse that runs along this small road towards the mountains which if it's running you can take for 0.50 EUR, otherwise you'll have to walk or hitch hike. Once you get to the peak of the mountain range you'll be standing almost exactly on the Albanian and Montenegrin border. You'll be able to look out over one of the most magnificent lakes in Europe as well as get a good view of the Adriatic coast, Albania and Montenegro. Continue hitchhiking up the lake, you'll get to see some of the most rural untouched villages in the Balkans. The southern half of the lake shore is populated by ethnic Albanians while the northern half all the way up to the town of [[Virpazar]] is populated by Montenegrins. There is very little travel between the two communities so there are almost no buses that run the course of the highway meaning you'll either have to walk or hitchhike. The people driving the road though few and far between seemed more than willing to take hitchhikers. If you camp (which is a good idea) there are some camp sites about half way between [[Virpazar]] and [[Arbnez]].
 
==Eat==
Near the beach stalls sell kebab and hamburgers.
 
Note that the fish restaurants calculate the price per 1 kg of raw fish. Example: One raw fish is about 500-600 grams, but when cleaned and cooked, it's around 200 grams. You get charged for 500-600 grams.
