A migratory bird that
chose to cross the lovely Adriatic on its way to the worm south would
answer the question like this: Where coastline loses its escort, those
large and long islands,where the high mountain crags, often violent and
barren, descend and transformed into low and gentle hills, and then into
wide lowlands interspersed whith rivers and lakes, where the plant life
grows denser and spreads to the sea itself, to be stopped by unique,
long, sandy beaches- that is where ULQINI is.
In the vast
expanse of the globe this town would cover a tiny spot on the
intersection of the stripes between longitudes 19’8 (village of
Fraskanjel) and 19’23 (Old Ulqini- island of Kruç) east, and latitudes
41’50 (Ada e vogel) and 42’5 (Kozjaku i vogel) north. This means that
the great red ball sends its warm rays to Ulqini under the same angles
as it does to Barcelona and Rome.
Ulqini lies on the edge of subtropical zone of the European
Mediterranean and has the Adriatic variant of the Mediterranean climate
and subtropical vegetation. It has a lot of light and warmth, 2,700
hours of sunlight a year. In mild winters the average air temperature in
the coldest month, February,is 7.1’C. It snows very rarely , and when it
does it is a real adventure for the population. Springs come here early
and are warm and luxuriant, autumns long ,warm and rich, and summers
blazing and arid.
Ulqini can be reached by land and by sea and indirectly by air. The
nearest airports are Tivat (85 km.), Podgorica (95 km.), and Dubrovnic
(152 km.). A road (25 km) links it with its closest neighbor, the town
and the port of Tivari. The road runs beside the sea, through
picturesque countryside, preparing traveller-tourists for a lovely
Via Tivari railway station, Ulqini has become part of the railway
network of Montenegro Yugoslavia and Europe. Its harbor and the sea
connect this area with the harbors and towns along the Adriatic Sea and
The entrance to the town is somewhat unusual, as if the host had turned
his back on his greatest love, the sea, to give his guest an impatient
and cardinal welcome. The sea front, sea, Old Town and beaches are left
for a new pleasant surprise.
