istor
The wider area of Ulcinj has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. Illyrian tombs (tumuli) found in the village of Zogaj, in the vicinity of Ulcinj, date back to the Bronze Age.

The town is believed to have been founded in the 5th century BC by colonists from Colchis. The Colchian colonization is mentioned in the 3rd century BC, in a poem by Apollonius of Rhodos.

Illyrians lived in the region at the time, and under Greek influence built immense so-called Cyclopean Walls. In 163 BC, the Romans captured Colchinium from the Illyrian tribe of Olciniates and renamed the town "Olcinium" (aka "Ulcinium") after the tribe. Under Roman rule the town received the status of "Opidum Civium Romanorum" (Town with Special Privileges), only to be later granted "Municipium" (Independent Town) status. When the Roman Empire was split in two, Olcinium became a part of the Eastern Roman Empire (later known as the Byzantine Empire).

Before the medieval period, Ulcinj was known as one of the pirate capitals of the Adriatic Sea. This is also seen during the later period of Illyrian Kingdom. Inhabitants of Ulcinj were known at the time of Christ, especially from 20 BC to around 300 AD, to be very confrontational to those who were foreigners to their land; they were especially meticulous about border disputes as well.

In 1183, Rascian Grand Duke Stefan Nemanja conquered Olcinium and the town prospered as one of the most significant coastal towns. Ulcinj remained in Nemanjic hands till Emperor Dušan"s death in late 1355. In 1356, Lord Balša I, the founder of the Zetan Balšić dynasty, was granted parts of former Dioclean territory, including Ulcinj, by Emperor Dušan"s son and successor, Emperor Uros VI, and broke away from the Serbian Empire, only to establish an independent lordship called Zeta. Under Balšić"s control, Ulcinj served as a popular resort, as well as a mint.
The Republic of Venice captured Ulcinj from Balša III of the Zetan Balšić dynasty in 1423. Venice controlled "Dulcigno" (as it was called in the Venetian language) until 1571 and incorporated the city in the Albania Veneta. Under Venetian control.

In medieval time, a shipwreck of a Saracen ship on the shores of Ulcinj with stranded African slaves; locals saved the surviving Africans and made them an integral part of the population of the town.

In 1571, the Ottoman Turks conquered Dulcigno from the Venetians. In 1867, Ulcinj became a kaza of the İşkodra sanjak of Rumeli veyalet. Ulcinj finally gained its independence from the Turks on 11 January 1878 by the decision of the Berlin Congress (see Treaty of Berlin (1878)), only to be fully integrated into nearly three years later, on 30 November 1880.
