During our trip through Montenegro in summer 2010, we also took the chance to hop over the border and explore the old Albanian city of Shkoder for two days.
It is situated at the southern end of the Lake Shkodra, of which about one third is located in Albania and two thirds in Montenegro.
With slightly more than 100.000 inhabitants Shkoder is one of the largest cities of the country. The main sight is probably Rozafa Castle, whose history dates back to before Christ. The castle is also a great place to enjoy panoramic views of the city, the lake and the surrounding region.
Among other architecturally interesting buildings in the city centre are two relatively new mosques, two Catholic churches as well as an Orthodox Church and the Migjeni Theatre.
"Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are."
--- Bertolt Brecht ---
- Pros:Panoramic views from Rozafa Castle; great variety of religious buildings.
- Cons:No direct transport connections to Kosovo.
- In a nutshell:Shkoder – Albanian city at the foot of Rozafa Castle.
