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

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;)
oh i got it what about the current population of Prizren ? can you tell me it?
I doubt it. I have read that Shkodra used to have up to 50.000 (city website) 150 years ago. If you look at the city today however you will notice that its older part is much smaller than that of Prizren. Moreover, officially Shkodra numbers close to 100.000 while Prizren around 180.000. Prizren might officially be even bigger than Durres, as on the world-gazetter Durres numbers around 120000 (it seems low but they tend to base numbers on official statistics).

There's no way Prizren is bigger than Durres.
Durres is 350.000 people, double the size of Prizren in population.
The city of Durres itself is 220.000 people and the whole District is well over 300.000 according to the World Bank
Duress 2001 census 113 465
County 202 456

Nowhere near 300 000 let alone 350 000

Prizren census 1991 92 801

So i presume now Prizren is way bigger

Durres is 350.000 people, double the size of Prizren in population.
Prizren 1971 41 761 population
Prizren 1981 61 801
Prizren 1991 92 801 population
Next census 2006
Estimated population 110 000-125 000

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;)
