The village of Fishta

Fishta village is part of Zadrima which is rich in cultural history. This village has a forest area of about 1656 ha, and these forests consist of oaks, hornbeams, ash and raspberries. It also has an area of about 4235.4 ha, cereals, forage, legumes, vineyards, orchards, etc.

Efforts to protect culture, language and faith rose to a higher level with the holding of several assemblies in the area

Zadrima songs are an important part of the folk music of our nation and also the colorful and traditional Zadrima customs and costumes are a treasure in itself for the Albanian ethnography.

In this village you will find the restaurant 'Mrizi i Zanave'. The house turned into a farm-restaurant was founded by brothers Altin and Anton Prenga. The brothers, after living for years in Italy, decided to return to Albania. They started the business thus realizing the dream of their life. It is the perfect place to spend a few hours surrounded by nature. You can play in the fields or admire many of the farm animals.

Mrizi i Zanave motto is: ‘Think globally, eat locally!’. The menu includes only local products, grown by local farmers or in the gardens of the same farm. You can find there the typical wines of the Albanian land, such as the autochthonous and prestigious wines of Kallmet - to goat cheeses, pie with spinach or pumpkin and other gastronomic delights. The old family house offers four excellent rooms furnished in wood and stone. After waking up, the stunning view over the vineyards and Lezha leaves you speechless.
