(combining Bujan, Fierza, Bajram Curri)
To be perfectly honest, this name won’t mean anything to a Tropojan – but until we find a better one, we’re grouping together all the low lying land surrounding the lower reaches of the Valbona River, from where it leaves the national park until it joins Komani Lake (aka: Drin River) at Fierza. Why? Because the river has a completely different character here, wider and slow moving, and because this whole region can be explored from one base. As the lowest elevation part of the region, it’s been seen labelled on one old map as “Gropa e Tropojes” or ‘the hole of Tropoja’ – presumably meaning the valley of Tropoja – but then that would get confused with Old Tropoja . . . sigh. There are starting to be quite a few decent hotels scattered around – focussing more on luxury (well, for here) accommodation more than traditional charm.
