Kukës - Key information

Kukës, one of the smaller district capitals of Albania, is a city that boasts a striking setting amidst the Albanian Alps. This northern Albanian city, the capital of its county, stretches over 8.2 square kilometres, offering a blend of rugged natural landscapes and a tranquil urban atmosphere.

The city’s history extends over a thousand years, rooted in the time of the Illyrian tribes, particularly the Dardani, and the region’s role as a waypoint on a branch of the historic Via Egnatia trade route. Today, Kukës is noted for its location by Lake Fierza and near the confluence of the Black and White Drin rivers, where the Drin River begins. It provides an excellent base for those interested in exploring the mountainous terrains and cultural depth of the Albanian highlands.
