LAST SECRET OF EUROPE

SHKODER - ALBANIA


Visit with us “the last secret of Europe“, the country that spent so much time “behind the Iron Curtain“…

Shkoder on Bojana, one of the oldest cities in the southern part of Europe is surrounded by Shkoder Lake, and Bojana and Drim rivers. The symbol of the town is a combination of three different religious monuments situated at the very heart of Shkoder: an orthodox church, a cathedral, and a mosque. They are symbols of hope, faith, and reconciliation. Discover the history of The Rozafa Citadel that has dominated the city and defied time for more than 2000 years. Rozafa was built on the mount above Buna, Bojana, Drim and Kiri junction. Rozafa Citadel has 7 towers, a surface area of 6 hectares and a magnificent view from the top. The archaeology and Ethnography Museum is a proof of the rich history and culture of this area.
