Visit with us “the last secret of Europe“, the country that spent so much time “behind the Iron Curtain“. Shkoder on Bojana, one of the oldest cities in the southern part of Europe is surrounded by Shkoder Lake, and Bojana and Drim rivers. The symbol of the town is a combination of three different religious monuments situated at the very heart of Shkoder: an orthodox church, a cathedral, and a mosque.
Discover the history of The Rozafa Citadel that has dominated the city and defied time for more than 2000 years. Rozafa was built on the mount above Buna, Bojana, Drim and Kiri junction. Rozafa Citadel has 7 towers, a surface area of 6 hectares and a magnificent view from the top. The archaeology and Ethnography Museum is a proof of the rich history and culture of this area. The trip starts from the main bus station in Herceg Novi. The journey continues by ferry and goes on through Tivat and the beautiful Budva Riviera. On the way to Shkoder, you will enjoy Drim river sightseeing. Upon arrival, you will have a guided city tour at city center where 3 different religions are so closely bonded – in a circle of 200m a church, a cathedral and, a mosque will arise before you. After visiting the city center we will go for a visit of the Rozafa Citadel, one of the most significant monuments in Albania. Our next matter of interest is the Archaeology and Ethnography Museum.
