Three vegetation belts have been created under the influence of such a climate: the first belt with permanently green vegetation (up to an altitude of 300 m) dominated by trees like the olive tree, the fig tree, the citrus (tangerines, oranges, lemons), almonds, kiwis.

The second belt consists of: chestnuts, pommegranates, vine and grains and the third belt is made of: pears, apples, plums etc. The coastal belt is decorated by pine trees, agaves, palm trees and other beautiful plants. Ulcinj is widely recognized on the tourist market for its huge areas of agricultural land, a clean and unpolluted environment that no industry or anything else has ever spoiled, being exploited by the hard-working residents, who produce ecological food. 

The Ulcinj agricultural products (water melons, tangerines, oranges, kiwis, figs, pommegranates, then greenpeppers and tomatoes) used to fill up the markets of the Yugoslav republics such as Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia. When these products are combined with various fish caught in the sea, the river Bojana or lake by the hands of industrious Ulcinj fishermen, as well as with the home-made brandy and wine, the Ulcinj cuisine is made recognizable through the hands of the skillful chefs with their domestic specialities to which nobody can stay indiferent, especially when served by experienced waiters.
