Rozafa Castle

Rozafa Castle

Aurel Duka

Shkodra is a very old city (about 2400 years)  that has managed to keep characteristic appearance, with narrow streets with tall stone walls on both sides, and tall gates, although a large part of it has been transformed after World War II, with straight wide streets and tall residential and public buildings. The city expanded with several new quarters, and the industrial zone was built north of the city. Needless to say that these quarters are of little interest to the visitor.

The main sights of the twon are the Castle (Rozafa), the Turkish Bath (hamam), the Mosque of Plumbi, and many old houses with an appearance characteristic the region. The city lies next to the lake and the residents use the beach of Shiroka for recreation.
