Mes Bridge (Ura e Mesit)

The largest and best preserved bridge from the Ottoman Empire in Albania, Mes Bridge (Ura e Mesit) crosses the Kir River about 6 kilometers North of Shkodër in the village of Mes. Built about 1770, the 108 meter long bridge is not only historic, but stunningly beautiful.

Situated along the ancient trade route between Shkodra and Kosovo, Romans, Venetians, and many other powers used this route to visit highly important route through the Drini Valley.

Beneath the bridge, the incredibly blue waters of the Kiri River wind their way from the mountains to the Buenë. Children swim beneath the bridge in Summer, not a bad way to cool off under the hot Albanian sun.
