Mirdita for many people, still remains a mystery. This part of Albania bears an abundance of archaeological, ethnographic, linguistic and folkloric traditions very valuable, but still little known by the public opinion.
Mirdita has a rare richness in terms of plants, almost unknown in other Albanian territories, but also in the Balkans.
The dense forests and mountainous landscapes constitute an ideal refuge for the Mirdita fauna. There are present a series of birds like the owl, raven, nightingale, blackbird, to large animals such as the wild boar, deer, wolves and even bears.
