Ulcinj is a town in Montenegro.

Understand

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.

Get in

  • There are frequent buses from Podgorica that should cost under €5.
  • From Bar you can either take a normal bus or catch a 'combi' minibus that runs up and down the coast of Montenegro.
  • From Kosovo during the tourist season there are frequent buses leaving from the major cities. The price should be around €25.
  • 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. These are, in theory, well connected with Albanian 'furgons' from Tirana and Durres.

Get around

Ulcinj is a small city, you will have no problem getting around by foot.

See

There is an old castle over looking the sea.

Do

Ulcinj is a splend 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, eco tour, and vacation beach stays in all of the Adriatic.

  • UlcinjToday.com [1] provides "always fresh" ideas and information about excursion, accomodation, events, and news of Ulcinj and the South Coast - a resource site for Montenegro's South Coast region.

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.

  • 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.

Sleep / Accomodations

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.

Full-Service Resorts

  • Hotel Mediteran Resort - Ulcinj [3] is a full-service resort adjacent to the city beach in Old Town, with a fine view of the old battlements of Stari Grad Ulcinj and the Adriatic Sea. Hotel Mediteran is one of the first resort properties purchased from the Republic of Montenegro under privatization, and has completed a renovation of all of its guest rooms and major Congress Hall event and banquet center. Most of the large weddings of Ulcinj and Montenegro's South Coast are held at Hotel Mediteran.
  • Illyrian Resort - Ulcinj [4] is the next phase of construction for the master-planned Hotel Mediteran Resort development. The Illyrian Resort will open shortly and be Ulcinj's first true 4-star resort serving Montenegro's South Coast.

Other Accomodations

Many locals have built additional rooms onto their houses which they rent to tourists, although these accomodations are all unregulated and not inspected, and the construction is not officially permitted or inspected. Some visitors take these accomodations because of the very low price but visitors should be aware since locals are apt to take advantage of visiting foreigners. As the best alternative, the resort hotels in Ulcinj generally operate according to European standards.
