Shkodra, known as the “capital of north Albania” it is one of the oldest cities in the country, founded in the 4th century B.C. It was the center of the Labeat tribe of Illyrians. Shkodra has been occupied several times throughout history: Firstly by the Romans (168 B.C.), then the Serbians (1040), the Venetians (1396), and finally by the Ottomans (1479). The city was returned to Albanian control as the feudal principality of the Balshaj during the 14th century and served as the municipal center of the Bushatllinj Pashallëk from 1757 to 1831. Shkodra is rich in cultural heritage; the city itself as well as the people bears the pride that the large number of artists, musicians, painters, photographers, poets, and writers born here strove to create. Shkodra’s main tourist attraction is Rozafa Castle. Rising majestically upon a rocky hill west of the city, the outcroppings and battlements paint a blazing picture against the setting sun. It is surrounded by the waters of three rivers: Drini, Buna, and Kiri. Inside the walls of the castle there is an interesting museum. Marubi National Museum of Photography is located in the city center. There are many things waiting for you to be discovered on this day tour.
