Ulcinj – For the first time in two and a half millenniums of existence Ulcinj’s Old Town has got its guide.
Printed in 1.000 copies and in five languages, the guide in short reminds on the tumultuous past of the ancient edifice and its most famous inhabitants.
– On his traveling towards Orient, Arnold Harvey seeing the Old town, high above on the crag as some kind of a shipwrecked boat, says that he imagined paradise like that. Miguel Cervantes found the inspiration in it for Dulsinea and Don Kihot, and the reformer Talmuda, Sabatj Cevi spent his last days there – it is said in the guide.
On the photographs, which are being published for the first time, the most important facilities of the Old tow are found there, some characteristic streets and houses, and in the end the map.
NGO “Kaljaja”, that is the association of friends of the Old town and its president Ismet Karamanaga, who wrote the text, appear as the publishers, while Gazmend Citaku, who is the technical director, made the photographs.
– Ministry of tourism has given a modest contribution to help the guide see the light. I expect that Ulcinj businessman will have the heart to help the project and to aid the possible additional printing of the edition – said Karamanaga.
