Shpella e Dragobisë was the last known hideout of the Kosovar rebel Bajram Curri.
The Dragobi “cave” is where Kosovar freedom-fighter Bajram Curri and his band of men holed up in the winter of 1925, on the lam from King Zog. Zog, pushed by the Italians, objected to Bajram's efforts to call for a reunification of Kosova and Albania. The 'Cave' is actually a rock formation buried deep in the forest of MasKollata, making a natural sort of fortress. Curri and his men were here in deep winter, hiding until a hunter's dogs found them. Story is that as the soldiers grew nearer, Bajram Curri and his men shot themselves, rather than be captured.
