EXPLORE

Ulcinj is the most interesting town on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, a place where three major religions fruitfully permeate one another.  It is a mixture of the Mediterranean and Europe, the Orient and West.  It is still possible to see and feel the traces of the rich legacy belonging to nine civilizations, which had passed through Ulcinj, if you come to visit this monumental old town, an architectural agglomeration established in the fifth century B.C.  Every exploring spirit will find the period of 25 centuries at one place as a real challenge especially if this explorer longs to find out why this town has been a safe base for the most well-known pirates on the Adriatic.

Should you decide to walk around the town,  you might discover the beauty of numerous religious edifices of all three confessions. Sahat Kula (Clock Tower), hamam (Turkish bath), Roman ruins… The visit to the former episcopacy – the town Shas, where there used to stand, as the legend states, as many churches as there are days in a year, is an unforgettable experience.
