Dibër has been the battlefield of Turkish and other Balkan wars for centuries. Its river Drini i Zi (Black Drin) was colored in red blood several times which gives the name to the river to pay tribute to those who have fallen during the wars for centuries. Diber contains 7 lakes of Lurë. Dibër is the place where the Kastriot village lays, which is close to another village called Sinjë (Sinë) where the George Kastrioti Skanderbeg was born and returned after the Turkish escaping to Diber.
