Church-mosque, Old Town of Ulcinj-Montenegro-

Translated by Arijeta Ljeskovac

The most mesmerizing monument that stands as a symbol of coexistence between the Western and Eastern culture is beyond doubt the Church-Mosque of Ulcinj, situated in the Old Town.

The Church of Saint Maria was built in 1510 by Venetians. Once the place was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, the Church turned into a Mosque. The Mosque bears the name of Sultan Selim II.

A carved stone minaret was built by Hajji Halil Skura back in 1693.

It was a meeting point of distinguished Raeeses while decision – making.
