Surrounded by cypresses pinnacles proudly pointing towards the sky, a quiet city and the country’s capital dwells on the peaceful banks of the Moraca River. The time is captured in the old remnants of castles, the Clock Tower and numerous churches while the ultramodern Millennium Bridge brings us back to the present. The grand Scadar Lake expands widely away to Albania with the tiny islands scattered all over it. It can’t get more picturesque than these stony islands bearing mysterious ruins reminiscent of the times the lake has witnessed. One of them is the old prison keeping its gloomy secrets. The lake itself is a natural wonder and a safe abode for many kinds of wild birds. Many wild life enthusiasts as well as fishermen are attracted to the charms of these waters.
