The city of Shkodër is one of the most important cities in Albania
It is 2400 years old city , one of the oldest in Europe
During the Ottoman years it had the biggest Market in the Balkans
It is a city rich in culture and tradition
Located in North-Western Albania , it makes up of over 100.000 inhabitants :)
Because it is a northern city , it hasnt progressed as it should , so is way behind Tirana and Durrës
Here are some photos

At the moment Shkodra is a shadow of its glorious past, but the ingredients are there.

Being an incurable optimist I am sure Shkodra will shine again.
Highly optimistic eh;)
Of course Shkodra will get better but seems to me that the old town is starting to dissapear in the midst of all these constructions that have no appeal whatsoever to me.
Dont just built, built something worth looking at.

Acctually Prizren is/was small compared to Shkoder.
Shkoder is one of the oldest cities in Europe and it was a villayet back in the day.
It had the largest market in the Balkans and was the biggest and most important cultural and economic city in albanian inhabited lands.
Its population today as a whole could be around 200.000 inhabitants so it's not really that small;)

Trust me, there is no way Prizren is bigger than Durres;)
You are comparing Prizren with second largest city in Albania and just by the numbers if Prizren is the second city in Kosovo it cannot be larger than Durres since Albania has a bigger population than Kosovo and not only that but Durres ia the biggest tourist destination in all the country whereas Prizren, well no;)
