Over a thousand years old, the city of Kukës beautifully combines its urban qualities with the natural ones. For many years, Kukës’ tower-like traditional houses welcomed guests and served them delicious alpine trout and chestnut honey. This hospitable city was nominated for the Nobel Prize for hosting Kosovo refugees during the war in Kosovo. Blessed by the fresh air of the Drin River and the Fierza Lake, Kukës replenished one’s mind and soul. The Valbona National Park, is a gorgeous place full of alpine views, waterfalls, forests, with the Shalë River running through the valley as well as plenty of other wondrous sights. The northern Albanian landscape is one of the most beautiful parts of the country with Valbona and the Accursed Mountains (Bjeshkët e Namuna) representing two of the country’s most visited spots.
