Shuaip Pasha's House (Albanian: Shtëpia e Shuaip Pashës) was the home of Shuaip Pasha, first Abanian Minister of Finance.[1] It was located in Prizren, Kosovo,[a] near Old Stone Bridge, at the riverside of Prizrenska Bistrica. The house was built in the early 19th century by Shuaip Aga, a prominent leader of the Albanian League of Prizren, and it was destroyed in 1999.[2] In 2012, under the supervision of Cultural Heritage without Borders organisation, a plan of conservation and reconstruction was presented.[3]
