Welcome to Shkodër
Shkodër is one of the Balkan’s most ancient cities and the country’s fourth most populous city, exerting strong influence in northern Albania’s history, religion, arts and entertainment.
Shkodër stretches across the plain of Mbishkodra between the Shkodër Lake and the Albanian Alps foothills. Shkodër is dominated to the south by the citadel of Rozafat, past which the Kiri River flows into the Buenë.
Although Shkodër is a sprawling town, it should be possible to walk around the historic center quite easily.
