Wouldn't Macedonian be in Cyrillic?
And why Turkish in Albania? Even more so, why Turkish and not Greek?

That is not in Albania, and in the Pec area (where the picture is taken) formerly was a significant turkish minority, probably some turks still live there.

That's right, it's in Slovenian. It's Macedonian (Скопје), but transliterated in Latin alphabet. In Serbian it's Skoplje/Скопље.

I misread something somewhere, apparently.

Macedonian is written in Cyrillic only, so Skopje cannot be in Macedonian.

not true, Macedonian can also be written in Latin. The point is that the name is Macedonian version, original, and not Serbian as meant to be.

Here you can learn something about the correct transcription of cyrillic into latin characters:

The sign is in Prizren, not in Peja. Kosovo has two official languages: Albanian and Serbian. In towns where significant other minorities exist, or where languages have been used in the past for cultural reasons, other languages can be official in that town. Therefore Prizren has Albanian, Serbian and Turkish as official languages that are used throughout the town in signs and other public documents.
