In an exotic coastal place like Ulcinj, you cannot immediately find out what will instantly attract you and on which side will its charms take you. At first it can appear to you that the “Oriental tide” which leads you to little alleys, on city causeways or squares is lurking you, so in wandering from the Old town to the Old Ulcinj you can think that one day lasts for eternity, and your getting to know with this town can seem longer than a century. On the other side Ulcinj attracts you with its exclusivity with – a great natural gift – a naturalistic island Ada Bojana something that very few countries have.
