Опис на основни активности The history of the creation of the city Prrenjas dates back a long time.

In the period of the Albanian-Ottoman wars, the area where the city rises was called Torviollit. The native hero, Skanderbeg, before heading for battle (the battle is known in history as Torviollit fight) told to his fighters, that the battle must be won. A significant history has been written here.

The name of the town of Prance is closely related to the same battle that the Skanderbeg army won. Many Turkish and Albanian soldiers were killed. There were so many soldiers killed that is  believed to have been flowing a river of blood.
