Today is the anniversary of the League of Prizren, which celebrates 136 years. Its foundation dates back on 10 June 1878.

League of Prizren in the history of the Albanian people is the most important Albanian national rally.

Istanbul Committee was established by the patriots of the time in 1877 to liberate Albanian territories from Slavic and Greek hegemonism. The Turkish Empire, after the Tanzimat (1848) and Russo-Turkish wars in 1875-1876, was decreasing rapidly.

Albanians who operated and worked within the Turkish Empire had sensed the danger of the fragmentation of their land, so they founded the "Rescue Committee" of ethnic territories.
Istambul Committee was composed of most prominent Albanian intellectuals of the time: Pashko Vasa, Jani Vreto, Ymer Prizreni, Zia Pristina, Sami Frashëri, Ahmed Korenica, Mihal Harito, Iljaz Dibra, Mehmet Ali Vrioni, Seid Toptani, Mustafa Nuri Vlora, Mon Tahiri etc.

League of Prizren is one of the most powerful political Leagues created on Albanian lands as a continuation of the League of the Assembly of Lezha in 2 March 1444, under the direction of George Kastrioti Skanderbeg and the leaders of principalities, namely the Albanian princes in the fifteenth century.

This League is remembered as the most organized political League of modern times of Albanians, for freedom and for the protection of their lands.
