The Theth National Park (Albanian: Parku Kombëtar i Thethit) is a national park in northern Albania declared by the Albanian government decree in 1966.[1] It covers an area of 2,630 hectares and is located along the Theth village on the Albanian Alps. The main attractions in the park are the Grunas Waterfall, the Catholic Churches and the Lock-in Tower.[1] In 2017, the Albanian Government declared Theth a Protected Historic Center.

Adjacent Valbonë Valley National Park was declared as such in 1996.[2] It is proposed that the two parks, along with the areas in Montenegro and Kosovo[a] form a tri-border Bjeshket e Nemuna National Park.[3]
