WORST CITY - Elbasan, Albania

Elbasan, Albania

Population: 100,120

Worst Feature: Corruption and Pollution

Best Feature: They have a soccer team

Notice a bit of a pattern here? Many of our “Worst places to Live” are plagued by urban decay, civil war, violence, or pollution.

How about a city that has all of the above? Welcome to Elbasan, Albania.

The Elbasan area not only has all of the problems of the ongoing wars between Albania and Kosovo, the mob influences and gang violence that seem to accompany every “emerging democracy” in the world – but it also has a toxic legacy left over from communist era industrial facilities built by the Chinese, many of which are still operating today.

On a recent trip though the area a European traveler had this to say: “the buildings are crumbling and the streets are dismal.

All of the young people have left and there is literally nothing of interest there or anything to do – and there is nowhere to get a decent cup of coffee.”

Albania is one of the poorest countries in Europe with an average daily income of about £3.00, compared to £46.60 in the UK. Following the collapse of communism, conditions improved slightly as economic and diplomatic ties with the rest of the world were restored. Yet the services widely available under communism have deteriorated badly. One-third of children under five have no access to pre-school. Rates of infant and maternal mortality are high and many essential primary health care services are in need of investment.

Children in Albania face risks from many directions in particular child trafficking. Various estimates place the total number of trafficked children at 5,000 to 15,000, most of them ending up in Italy or Greece, or even Western Europe. During the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999, nearly 500,000 ethnic Albanians fled from Kosovo to Albania, putting great strain on Albania's already fragile economy and limited resources.
