Dukagjini is more than just a bookshop. It is a relaxing and lively oasis for bibliophiles, a cultural gem that enriches the vibrant Mother Theresa Boulevard with its diverse and elegant collection of books. As soon as you enter, you are greeted by a kaleidoscope of colours that rival a florist’s display and a cozy atmosphere that invites you to stay on a gloomy winter day.
The architectural design of the bookshop is captivating and encourages you to discover every nook and cranny. Staircases take you to different realms of knowledge and imagination; a narrow balcony where you can browse books on law; a spacious seating area where you can enjoy the classics; the basement for children’s books; the political book corner under the staircase – and many more. It is like a restaurant with an infinite menu of books to suit every taste. My favourite section is to the right of the entrance – the fiction books. You can also visit the beautiful “gift shop” inside, where the staff can neatly wrap your books, or other accessories. The musical theme of the store is another aspect that I cherish. The piano in the middle of the store is a really nice touch and I always hope I’m there when someone plays it.
