Lanë is the main stream that crosses through Tirana, the capital of Albania. Its source is in the mountains east of Tirana. Although once clean, it now carries sewage. Before there were many buildings around and on the banks of the river, but they were torn down and removed in a campaign by Tirana's mayor Edi Rama. Now most of its banks have been planted with different kinds of trees and grass. No fish live there now due to the high pollution of its waters.
