Know some more about the Vjosa River:

The Vjosa River in Albania is one of Europe’s last living wild rivers. Along its entire course of over 270 kilometers, it is untamed and free-flowing and characterized by beautiful canyons, braided river sections, islands, oxbows, and meandering stretches. In some areas, the riverbed expands over more than 2 km in width. However, what makes this river really outstanding internationally is the fact, that almost all its tributaries are free-flowing and intact as well, creating a living rivers network that is without par in Europe.

The Vjosa River in Albania is of pan-European or even global importance. It represents one of the last intact large river systems in Europe, hosting all different types of ecosystems: from the narrow gorges in the upper part to the wide braided river sections in the middle part to the near-natural delta at the Adriatic Sea. Scientific knowledge about the Vjosa and its biodiversity or crucial physical processes such as sediment transport or groundwater systems is very limited.

The Vjosa River has a special and crucial place in the daily lives of the people that live along its banks. Its terraces provide the villages with fertile land for agricultural activities such as crop production and livestock farming. The abundance and diversity of fish is vital for the economy and the well-being of local fishermen.
