One of Albania’s oldest cities (about 2,400 years old), the city of Shkoder lies in northwestern Albania, at the confluence of the Buene and Drin rivers.
The ancient capital of Illyria, Shkoder first fell to the Romans; later, to the Serbs; was then captured by the Ottoman Turks; and finally, by the Montenegrins during the Balkan wars, before it became part of the newly independent kingdom of Albania.
With a population of around 90,000, the city is an important economic and cultural hub of Albania. The mechanical and electronic industries here are highly developed—the most important being the electric wires, leather, clothing and tobacco industries.
The city is characterized by sub-Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Shkoder receives the highest rainfall in Albania.

Overall Guide : Shkodra is the bike capital of Albania, because its flat. Queen Teuta' Illryan kingdom was based here in the 3rd century BCE. The Ottomans seiged it in 1473 and 1479, and lost 14,000 and 30,000 men in these raids, respectively.... more Shkodra changed hands with Montenegro numerous times during World War I. Shkodra was badly damaged in a 1979 Finding your way round Shkodra is complicated by the fact that recently ALL roads have been renamed, and some of the old names have even been re-used in different places! All roads have got new road signs. Since all the maps and guides (including this one) give the old names, finding your way round is a bit like being in a parallel universe. respekte Emirjona (SHKODER)
