Travel Tips for Ulcinj
This picture was taken from the road that runs on Suka, southeast to the city. It shows the amphitheater in which the city is built and in the middle an unidentified monument made of a pyramid standing on its head. Next time, I will have to reach it in order to identify it.
Busy city center
This picture shows Ulaz 26 Novembar (26 November street), the street that connects the upper new town (Bulevar Maršala Tita) and the beach. This picture was taken almost halfway. This is busy place with a lot of pedestrians and luckily not too much car traffic, at least when we were there, may be this is not true all the time !
Right by the side of the ruined church, stands Pasha mosque, built in 1719 by Klič Alija of Montenegro. In the background, the clock tower. I have read on several documents "the famous clock tower" but none of them said why it was famous !
"An especially impressive structure is the Clock Tower, built in 1754"
Leave outside shoes by the door or outside
More common sense and cleanliness than anything that when staying
in some ones house taking off your shoes and using flip flops or slippers
inside. Also when entering a mosque you have to cover your head (women),
wear long sleeves (arms and legs) and take off your shoes.
Anyway I think it is a pleasant sensation to walk barefeet on
the stone or marble floor on a hot summers day.
Ulcinj has the largest number of ethnic Albanians with 75% of the
town belonging to the largest Albanian community in Montenegro.
Then 80% of them are muslim.
Garbage and are the beaches clean?
I guess with Montenegro seeking to attract more tourists
and hopefully one day join the EU, they have become
more aware of the environment.
The beaches are cleaned up every day with people,
machinery and tractors raking through the sand and
cleaning the broad walk and surrounding streets.
With only a handful of rubbish bins on Mala Plaza, it's hardly
surprising that beach visitors feel more inclined just to bury
or chuck their rubbish.
Even on the main narrow street leading up from Mala Plaza
to the town centre, there are no visible rubbish bins provided
by Ulcinj Municipality, except large rubbish skips used by the shops,
bars and restaurants lining the upward climbing street.
Stari Grad (The old city) is very clean and apart from the
occasional black plastic bin bags clawed open by stray cats,
one of the cleanest old cities I have seen.
According to Zuto where we stayed, he told me that the sewerage
has a pipe which goes many kilometres out to sea. Well better
I suppose than seeing 'Floaters' on the shoreline or in the sea!
