Shkodër, how pretty you are!
The narrow alleys, which take you straight back in time.
The hundreds of traders that sell all sorts of goods on the walkways. 👗
The cafès, busy at any time of the day with people having espresso and raki.☕️🥃 This masterpiece is the Orthodox Church in the city, next to the busiest boulevard and a few meters away from the Mosque and the Catholic Church.
Yes, you read it right!
Albania hosts 3 national religions, which makes it such a beautiful and peaceful multi-faith community.
Just to mention some numbers: • 35% Muslim
• 23% Catholic (mainly in the north)
• 7% Orthodox (mainly in the south)
Albanias are for sure an example of diversity and acceptance. This is in part due to the black page that Communism has written in the history of the Country, while promoting a national atheism, as the only option possible, and forbidding and punishing any sort of worship. 🕌⛪️
