A number of citizens from Shkodra of different ages and occupations undertook a sailing trip in River Buna and Lake Shkodra. 

This tradition was stooped since the year 1944. This massive sailing tripstarted from the bride over Buna with final destination in the village of Zogaj, close to Montenegrin border. The trip is very nice with a beautiful landscape. From one side there are the slopes of Mount Tarabosh and in other side the placid waters of Lake Shkodra.
The locals form Shkodra are not the only group that follows this trip. Another group of Italians and Americans, who lives and works in Albania joined with this sailing trip. This activity has leaved to them a very good impression. 
“This trip is very pleasant and I will suggest it must be turned as e regular for the public” – said Giorgio Faragiano, an Italian tourist. 
“I came in Albania since 7 years ago form the Colorado State. This trip is so nice and pleasant” – said Paul Stenakali, an American Tourist. 
The arrival in Zogaj has created a great enthusiasm to all participants. The returning of this tradition has been combined with local foods (including the famous carp dish) and handicraft of the region. 
Mirsad, one of the organizers of this sailing trip said that the returning of this tradition will bring benefits even for people who like fishing. He said “we are trying to promote legal fishing and tourism on the Lake Shkodra”.
This activity brought to all the message of returning to this tradition in Shkodra Lake and Buna River.
