Çorovodë, also written as Çorovoda is the main city of Skrapar District, Albania with a population of around 9,500. The name of the town derives from the Slavic for "black water".
The river Osum passing the city forms upstream caves and the Osum Canyon which is the highest and the longest in Albania with 15 km length. The river provides opportunities for kayaking and other aquatic sport.
The smaller Çorovoda River flowing through the city mouths into the Osum river. Five km northeast of Çorovoda the river passes the Gradec Canyon it formed. In one of the cliffs the presumably biggest cave of Albania named "Pirogosh" is located. Allegedly, two kings, Piro and Goshi, named it. Also of note is the Ottoman-era Kasabashi stone bridge over the river.
Some archaeologists believe Çorovoda might be the oldest city in Albania. They have found ruins of some churches and a buried castle in Prishta which might be more ancient than the castle of Berat.
