TOURIST ATTRACTION DESCRIPTION
Kukes is situated 100 kilometres to the north-east of Tirana. It lies over the picturesque mountain Lake Fierze some lower of the peak of Mountain Gjallika (2,486 metres above sea level). Earlier the old town stayed on the place of confluence of the Black and White Drin effluent from Lake Ohrid. But in the middle of the 20th century when a hydro-electric power station was built on this place Kukes was moved away. Now it is a very nice small town worth to spent here one or two days, enjoy beautiful landscapes of a reservoir wedged between steep mountainous slopes and take a breath of clean mountainous air. The local hotel of Tourizem is considered to be one the most fashionable in the country. It is famous of its restaurant with nice cooking.
