About Kukësi

Kukës  is a town in Albania located in the district and county of the same name. It has a population of about 16,000 (2003 est). The town is set among the mountains of northern Albania and is famous for its role in the Kosovo conflict for taking in 450,000 refugees from Kosovo.  This led, in 2000, to it becoming the first ever town to be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize
The town was relocated as part of a hydroelectric scheme. The old Kukës was submerged beneath an artificial lake in 1976, the lake being held back by Chinese-built dams. Read more
