Ulcinj is a town in Montenegro.
Ulcinj is the southern most major town along the Montenegrin coast before reaching the border with Albania. Well over a majority of the population of Ulcinj is Albanian. Together with the town of Tuzi it is one of the two major population centers of Albanians in Montenegro. Due to the towns nice location on the coast it is a major tourist destination of much of the Albanian population of Kosovo.
Ulcinj is a small city, you will have no problem getting around by foot.
There is an old castle over looking the sea.
There is good swimming in the area. The longest sandy beach in Montenegro is located near by, including a nudist beach for those so inclined.
There are lots of gold and jewelry shops for those with a thick wallet.
Near the beach stalls sell kebab and hamburgers.
Accommodation are plentiful in Ulcinj, ranging from resort hotels to private accomodations. The resort hotels in Ulcinj are each in the process of renovation and reconstruction, as most have been recently privatized from former government agencies. Lodging costs range from full-service guest rooms at 50 EUR per person (or more) down to the many unlicensed/unregulated private accomodations costing in the range of 10 EUR. The town survives thanks to tourism and many locals have built additional rooms onto their houses which they rent to tourists. Beware of taking rooms in private accomodations as Montenegrins (both Albanian or Slavic) are apt to take advantage of visiting foreigners. The resort hotels in Ulcinj generally operate according to European standards.
