ofcourse it can! But from what I see, some of it is deteriorating. If it was redeveloped, it would be more charming. Abit like Skopje. Used to be a nice city under a cover, then it was transformed with some money.
The images I refer to are these:




This one would be nice if the entire street was restored as well as the facades:


I swear they look like a village not a city.

thats because the change to democracy has fucked up albanias cities alot. there's no funds. the late 80's photos look much much better than the 2003 photos.

Ofcourse they would. Overt he past 20 years, with no funding these buildings have deteriorated. To be honest, I never heard of this city before this thread, and Im sure alot of people havnt. But maybe if the government spent some money to advertise, it will get some recognition. After they restore the city of course.

Shkodra is one of those cities that can never fade away because its just beautiful, it's a significant historical piece as a city...there's few cities like it around the world, but without government assistanced, its kinda screwed

It's a very intersesting city . It was very important center during the ottoman time . I see many catholic churches . What's the percentage of catholic population in the city and surrounding areas ?
