Discover the “capital” of Albanian Culture
Today we will start the tour with Shkodra, a city of myths and legends. Along the way to the city we will first face the castle of Rozafa, which has a beautiful but bitter legend about its building which has come down to us from olden times.
After the visit of the castle we will continue to the famous pedestrian boulevard ”Pedonale” – where you can see the first cinema, first radio, to know more about the first family of photographs in Balkan, nowadays Marubi Museum, the St Stephen Cathedral where nowadays is the museum of Mother Theresa.
You will find that this naturally unique city has an abundance of mirrors in the Adriatic Sea, the Lake of Shkodra and the Buna River. Otherwise called the “city of bicycles,” the city’s views are best admired while pedaling in the open air!
Next stop will be Venetian Factory masks, a family-owned company with headquarters in Albania. It is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of handmade Venetian paper masks. (This factory produced all the masks used at the famous movie “The Golden Age”.)
Our tour also includes a local lunch at Shiroke in a restaurant in front of the lake where you can taste “Tave Krapi” a traditional dish with fish of the Shkodra lake.
Estimated duration of the trip: 10 h
