Ulcinj

While on vacation in Ulcinj, you'll be able to experience two distinct cultures without having to put one foot out of Montenegro.
Popular historic sites such as St. Nicholas' Church and Sailors' Mosque are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church Of Saint John and Scuba Quest Montenegro. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ulcinj: King Nikola's Palace (in Bar) and Veliki Pijesak Beach (in Dobra Voda). And it doesn't end there: experience rural life at Buzuku Montenegro Olive Oil, take a stroll through Ulcinj Old Town, enjoy the sand and surf at Ada Bojana, and explore the activities along Bojana River.
