The AADF chose the city of Kruja, the most visited city in Albania for the establishment of the first TID in order to help promote tourism and to ensure preservation of cultural heritage resources. The project will focus on the the restoration of the buildings in the Old Bazaar including roofs, facades, lighting and signage, underground works and improvement of cobblestones. The AADF will provide advisory services and grants to businesses operating in the area as well as institutional support.
A TID association has already been created by the AADF, Ministry of Culture, Municipality of Kruja and business owners from the Bazaar. Its objectives will be to promote as well as manage the TID area. Promotional activities will also be carried out for locally produced foods and other goods in and around the city.
