Aautumn visitors ‘invade’ Tushemisht, a place for everyone


This year Tushemisht welcomes foreign guests who opt to unwind by the lake, now with an extra reason—history—despite Lini’s rapid rise to prominence as one of the oldest communities in the Balkans.

In this village, Pandeli Llakmani is one of the tour guides. He notes that the summer season has been a great success and that numerous reservations have already been made for visitors in September and beyond, most of whom are from the European Union, particularly Germans.

“There has been a notable increase this year when compared to prior years. Travel agencies and foreign tourist groups have seen the largest increases in visitor numbers. Though visitors come from all around the world, Germans, French, and Italians make up the bulk. According to tour operator Pandi Llakmani, the agencies operate in this manner: from April to June, and then from the end of August until the beginning of November.

Groups from America and Germany have been visiting the tourist resort of Tushemisht for many days during the first few days of September. They say Tushemisht offers them peace of mind, good rates, friendly people, and delicious local food.

“I’m thrilled to be here. We rode across the Macedonian region; we’ve traveled to many places, but we wanted to get out of Albania,” an American traveler remarked.

I am an Englishman who has been in Albania for three weeks; I was in Shkodër the last time I was here, and I’m in Pogradec now. We are thoroughly loving it; the cuisine is amazing and is helping us to become healthier, and the hospitality is wonderful. We’re coming back,” said a second.

“I’m Max, and I’ve been in Albania for 14 days. I’m from Germany. We traveled from Vlora to Pogradec today to spend two nights. Another person remarked, “There’s nothing to be afraid of, and the rates are fair.

“I’m from Germany, and I’ve been in Albania for two weeks. This place has amazing flora and fauna, captivating nature, and wonderful meals. Other visitors remarked, “I think coming here was a good idea.
