Ulcinj to Skoder by `Forgon` (Minibus) or taxi?

by budapest8

I made the trip last year by taxi from Podgarica to Skodra and would like to
return to Albania and try the other route. Does anyone know the price of taxi from
Ulcinj to Skodra and is there a direct minibus between the 2 places? Also any tips about what a private room might cost now, in and out of season?
Thx..I think that part of the world is `Shoom bokor` ..

There is a minibus between Ulcinj and Shkoder...I took it in the opposite direction, so can't tell you the times from Ulcinj or indeed where to buy tickets. However, it doesn't leave from the main bus station, but from outside a cafe called Rozafa about half a kilometre closer to the town centre. In Shkoder, the minibus drops you off outside the Rozafa Hotel, right in the centre of town. I can't remember how much I paid, but think it was something like 10 Euros.

Not sure about how much rooms cost, but if you want a cheap place to stay in Shkoder, try asking for the Hotel Parku.

And yes, that region is shume bukur!

Thanx for your reply. I got an email from
a Ulcinj tourist web site and they quoted me the price of 6 euro,
but I guess as you have to apy 1 or 2 euro a bag it
would work out at around 10. Was it a nice route
by Lake Scutari with the minibus and how was the road?
Do you remember how long was the journey, 2 hours?
I stayed last year in Hotel Kaduku which is just
on the big square with the heroes statue..
(Lagja: Cajupi 84/1 Sheshi 5 Heronjte. It just opened after
a renovation, prices were 18 and 23 to 25 Euros a night,
recommend it, had own water supply and own generator
which is a must, and buses ran often before mid day to
Tirane on the opposite side of the Square.

Travel Tips for Ulcinj

The 1979 Earthquake that shook things up

by budapest8


The 1979 Montenegro earthquake referred to by locals in Ulcinj as "the catastrophe'
was the most devastating earthquake on the territory of present-day Montenegro,
then part of Communist Yugoslavia.


The Earthquake

The earthquake, which measured 7.0 on the Richter scale and IX on
the Mercalli intensity scale, occurred on April 15, 1979 at 07:19 local time,
fifteen kilometers from the Montenegrin coast between Bar and Ulcinj.
The tremor lasted for ten seconds and was mostly felt along the Montenegrin
and Albanian coastline.

Ulcinj's Old Town, another Montenegrin Cultural Heritage Site,
was almost totally devastated. The centuries old Balšić Tower
in Ulcinj nearly collapsed as a result of the earthquake.
See the link here for an official site where you can see just
how bad it was

Panoramic on the bay

by JLBG

This is not another photo as actually, I have put together the two previous ones as I felt it allowed better to understand how the city of Ulcinj lies between two capes Punta e Nuradinit, with the old city and Suka, from where this picture was taken.

Namazdah mosque

by JLBG

Namazdah mosque stands in the upper part of Ulaz 26 Novembar, almost on Bulevar Marsala Tita, at the junction with the newest part of Ulcinj/Ulqin. Besides its name, I have been unable to find any information on this mosque. After a lot of research, I have finally found that it was built in 1828 by Sulejman Mujali.

I have also found that the Main Mosque was built in 1728 and the Mountain Mosque in 1783 but have not identified them ! Next time !

Aurorae wrote me that the Main Mosque was actually Namazdeh Mosque. Thank you Jelena !

Quiet bathing ?

by JLBG

For those who want to bathe in a quieter place than the crowded city "small beach" (mala plaža) and that do not want to go to the "large beach" (velika plaža), outside (south) to the city can go on the steep slopes of Suka peninsula (Cap Ratislava).

Pirate Base!

by pure1942

Historically, Ulcinj had a tradition as a North African pirate base and slave trade centre. Between 1571 and 1878. A small group of North African and Maltese corsairs were the first group to sail the seas around this part of the Adriatic but many soon followed including Turks and Albanians. For 300 years the pirates used small galleons to attack and capture merchant ships and trade vessels and a development of a slave trade soon followed. This infamous chapter of Ulcinj’s history can be investigated more at the small Stari Grad museum and there is evidence detailing that a lot of houses in the Stari Grad were used a slave houses. The famous Spanish author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes is reputed to have been imprisoned in one of these houses!
