The two trump cards of Ulcinj
Ulcinj has long been highly ranked on the tourist map of Europe as a summer and winter resort with an excellent climate, given that this part of Montenegro is characterized by a very favorable climate.
Summers in Ulcinj are pleasant, and not too hot, because due to the constant flow of air, there are very few tropical days in that city.
Ulcinj can boast of 20 km of beaches, of which 15 km are sandy, olive groves of over 80 thousand trees, sources of highly rated mineral sulfur water, and as such, represents a huge potential for the development of all types of tourism, but also agriculture as a basic branch of the economy.
Of the many God-given assets of this region, we can single out two for this occasion: Ulcinjska Saltworks and Ada Bojana.
For lovers of the primal call of nature, the Ulcinj Saltworks is a real recommendation. The spacious, shallow and well-sunlit pools are reminiscent of the lagoons of tropical seas, and are surrounded by unique, lush tamarisk forests. In recent years, this oasis has been recognized worldwide as a favorite place for birdwatchers.
Millions of birds on their annual migrations from Africa to Europe cross hundreds of kilometers in flight. For the rest and renewal of the energy of those heavenly travelers, the Ulcinj Saltworks proved to be ideal. This kingdom of birds is located about 5 kilometers from the city center.
The salt pan is, in fact, a unique eco system with an area of about 15 km² and it provides very good conditions for wintering and feeding birds. During the winter, there are more than twenty thousand of them in the salt pan. If you are a careful observer, you will recognize, in addition to wading birds, which are the most numerous, also ducks, herons, pelicans, cormorants, and even birds of prey. However, many visitors to this Nature Park will claim that the most beautiful experience is watching flamingos, birds that are the symbol of the Ulcinj Salt Flats. It is interesting that these fascinating pink birds live here throughout the year, and according to official calculations, there are about two and a half thousand of them.
In any case, no matter how many times you visit it, you will experience seeing certain species for the first time in Solana.
At the confluence of the Bojana River with the Adriatic Sea, just after Ulcinj and Štoj, is the island of Ada Bojana, a favorite destination for a real vacation of all those who long to spend quality time away from the noise and crowds that are typical of many Mediterranean cities and beaches.
Although many people think that life here happens only during the summer, Ada is an excellent choice for a vacation for most of the year, from early spring to late autumn. In the summer, of course, Ada Bojana is the most beautiful, but you won't go wrong if you come in May or October to regenerate in this unique environment.
The smell of pines and sea water, the cooling breeze calms the spirit and has a beneficial effect on the body.
At Ada Bojana, you can choose several different activities, and the sports offer is very rich; and everyone can find something to their taste.
Not everyone comes here to sunbathe and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. On this part of the Montenegrin coast of the Adriatic, there are ideal conditions for windsurfing, and surfers from all over the world come to Ada Bojana to enjoy their favorite sport. Adrenaline is also guaranteed for fans of similar extreme sports (kitesurfing and kite flying).
All in all, whether you're looking for an active, dynamic vacation or you want to enjoy good food and lay in the sun all day long - this place will satisfy the needs of even the most demanding tourists.
If you intend to visit Ulcinj, remember to "taste" these Ulcinj trump cards, you won't regret it.
