Shkoder - Shirq

Short description:
Shirq Church is located on the right of Dajç village along the Buna River, and dates from the VIth century as a dedication to the two martyrs of the Byzantine Church, Serçi and Baku, whose tombs are located near the Euphrates River in Asia. Historians claim that the church has been the favorite place of the marriage celebration of the Albanian and Montenegrin princes. The architecture of the church is a mixture of Romanesque with Gothic style. Till 200 years ago, Shirq Church has maintained its full form, but then it was gradually destroyed by landslides and the flow of Buna River.
