In the lowlands due to the influence of the Mediterranean climate and the very hot summers, the crops are among the first in Southeast Europe, with the early advantages for crops: Grape vine, fruits and vegetables.
In the mountainous areas, the climate of the Alps is dominant, which is why snow levels remain in the pits until June, when in the summer the peaks of the mountains can be whitened. The city of Prizren lies in the southern part of the Dukagjini Plain, on the road that formerly connected the northern coast of Albanian lands and its civic-trade centers with the inland regions of Kosovo and the Balkans.
Based on the amount of water it is one of the richest countries. This position creates all the prerequisites for the development of agricultural crops, livestock, food industry and tourism, following the model of Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland.
The shortest route crosses the central part of the Balkan Peninsula with the Adriatic Sea through the Prizren side. This path, which for political reasons from the past today does not matter so much. It is a good opportunity to valorize all its advantages, given that it has had a primary impact on Prizren development in the past.
