Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
Ulcinj Old Town is one of the oldest urban architectural complexes along the Adriatic Sea. Originally built by the Illyrians, it was restored many times during its history by the Byzantines, Venetians, and Ottomans. Stroll down the steep, cobblestone streets and pass by or visit souvenir shops, barber shops, and stores that emanate the spirit of the old Orient. A former church and mosque on the upper plateau of the fortress houses the city museum. Try the local lemonade or Turkish coffee at one of the many cafes. Attractions include the foundations of a 12th-century church, a Turkish powder magazine, a Venetian palace, and the Square of Cervantes, once known as the slave square. Don Quixote's mistress Dulcinea was named after the city of Ulcinj, where the novelist was imprisoned for five years.
