Presentation of Prizren

The municipality of Prizren (221,000 inhabitants in 2006, including 171,000 in the town of Prizren proper) is located in southern Kosovo, sharing a border with both Albania and Macedonia.
In the late 19th century, Prizren was a stronghold of Albanian nationalism. Aimed at defending the Albanian-inhabited lands from being annexed by Slavic countries in the Balkans and seeking autonomy for Albania under the Ottoman Empire, the League of Prizren was established on 10 June 1878, disbanded in 1881, and partially reorganized unsuccessfully.
