The pirates have gone and the tourists coming

Notice the ugly proposed hotel that is being built/stopped being built?
Sadly some rich Russian greased a few palms to build this hotel building
blocking the view that was unspoilt for hundreds of years!

Old Ulcinj

On a small island or ridge, northwest of Ulcinj, in the Bay of Kruce, are the ruins of which are thought to have the remains of the Old Ulcinj - »Dolcigno Vecchio". The Venetian (istorjskim) documents, it was assumed that the ancient Olcinium was located between the reef and the mainland and sank. However, subsequent archaeological research has found that on this rock, or island, in ancient times contained a small signal station (specula), and in the Middle Ages, a fortress that served as a watchtower. The Kruce Gulf during the recent digging of the foundations for a house was discovered in late-antique villa rustica, Kruca. owner of a large house (Iatifundijee), which, in all probability, spread in the entire area of Kruce. According to the mosaic, ceramics and coins (the Emperor Anastasius I, Justin and Justinian I), which were found at that location, the villa is from the sixth century of that era and at the same time, as then, after the Illyrian walls in the Old Town, the most valuable complex that has to date been excavated in the area of Ulcinj.
