The Lana River flowing through the middle of Tirana has been given a place of honor in the city; wide boulevards run on either side, decorative lamp posts light its waters at night, and both banks have been planted with grass, trees, and bushes. However, the river itself has a less-than pleasing smell and often carries with it much of the rubbish that gets swept down storm drains.

About lanariver

I am the main stream that crosses through Tirana, the capital of Albania. My source is in the mountains east of Tirana. Although once clean, I now carry sewage. Before there were many buildings around and on the banks of the river, but they were torn down and removed.
