“The most unspoiled corner of Europe”
Reunited after a century is a trip that highlights the hidden history of Malesi region comprised of Valbona Valley (northeastern Albania) and Dukagjini (western Kosovo). Although nowadays these regions are located in two different countries, throughout most of history they were within one. The new borders that were forced in 1913 cut the area into two pieces, and from that point both sides lived in totally different realities. Once Communism fell, the borders opened and since then they have been working to restore relations.
Dukagjini in western Kosovo is at a crossroad of history acting as somewhat of a boundary between Orient and Occident. In Dukgjini, you will see the finest Roman mosaics, well-preserved Medieval frescoes, kullas (fortified stone houses), Ottoman mosques and bazaars, and two spectacular waterfalls.
Valbona Valley is part of Malesi in Albania and was never really conquered or subdued by the various waves of invaders during the last 2,000 years of Balkan history. It is hard to imagine such an unspoiled, pristine place that still exists in Europe – Dukagjini and Valbona will be all yours this trip!
