Things to do, places to see in Shkoder
The biggest lake in Southern Europe, which is the largest in the Balkan peninsula, should be just enough to make up one’s mind about visiting Shkoder, one of the most preserved ancient venues in Albania.
The eponymous lake is famous for its calm and clean water, as well as cycling tours which are the best means for enjoying the ravishing landscape. Boat trips and fresh fish meals, all of them very affordable, add to the flavour, as well as the charming fishermen’s village Shiroka.
The city stands near the confluence of two twin-rivers, Drin and Buna.
Near the city stands the ancient Rozafa, castle-museum where old weapons are exhibited. Go there to hit the sunset and enjoy the astonishing panorama of the lake and the surrounding mountains. The legend has it that Rozafa was bride of the youngest among three brothers. The walls of the castle kept falling because of the water, so someone had to be sacrificed to calm the gods. Of course, it was Rozafa. She was built into the walls alive. Traces of water running down the walls are believed to be her milk, that leaked so that her infant could be fed.
The statue of Mother Teresa (who was partly Albanian) adorns the center of the city.
History buffs will be interested in the Museum of Memory’s story about crimes that were committed during the rule of the infamous communist regime. The building, which was secret services headquarter, has seen torture and imprisonment of uncountable intellectuals.
For those who aren’t fond of grim stories, there is Marubi Museum of Photography, with a rich collection of over 500.000 photographs, both negatives and printed. The Marubi family were pioneers of photography in Albania. Most of the negatives date from the period of Albanian fight for independence, at the daybreak of the 20th century.
Mystical city of Shkoder is the meeting place of three different religions that are practiced in Albania, so there are many catholic cathedrals, orthodox churches and mosques.
