Municipalities of Albania

Municipalities (Albanian: bashki) are the second-level administrative divisions of Albania. Prior to 2015, there were two types of municipalities in Albania: municipalities with an urban character called bashki, and municipalities with a rural character called komunë (commune). Municipalities are all divided into at least two "administrative units" (njësi administrative), which are sometimes referred to as "municipal units" or "units of local governance". Administrative units are composed of one or more cities, villages, or neighbourhoods and constitute the third- and final-level administrative divisions of Albania.

In 2014, the government introduced a new administrative scheme that was implemented in June 2015 with local elections, whereby municipalities were reduced to 61 in total and rural komuna were abolished.[1] Most defunct municipalities are now administrative units and may also be cities, villages, or neighbourhoods.[2]
