Other Places in Valbona


 Relative Villages Valbona
 In fact there are 3 main centers of habitation in Valbona:  Quku i Valbonës (that’s us!), Valbona Qender (Center, aka: where the school is) & Rranxa e Brisë (generally referred to as Rrogam, although ‘Rrogam’ is actually an area, more than a village).  There is also a nice house in Kukaj, and a few options in Çerem.  There are also 3 other (small to big-gish) hotels: one in Quku i Valbonës, and two in Rrogam.  You don’t have to memorize this, all will be made clear below . . . .
