War Memorial in Ulcinj
On top of a resort town as old as the Bronze Age sits an incredible war memorial statue overlooking the beaches below.
The resort town of Ulcinj in Montenegro has a rich history and the architecture to go along with it. One monument in particular reflects the period it memorializes through its design.
The Ulcinj War Memorial sits on the edge of the mountain-top town and pays homage to Montenegro’s war times, specifically the Yugoslavian air force. Its unique structure resembles wings of a bird, or possibly an airplane, and seems to be keeping watch over the Mala Plaza (meaning Small Beach) below. Ulcinj is a very popular vacation spot during the summer months for many Europeans of Albanian, German, and Italian decent.
