The Field of Tears is a small city park steeped in the history of emigrants from Korça.Years ago, this park wasa small field located at the edge of the city, marking the beginning of the road leading to Greece—tough today the parkis dedicated to preserving the memory of emigration from Korça.It was here that women would wait, between candles and tears, to be reunited with their husbands returning from abroad, or at least with the hope to learn that they were somewhere alive and well. During the 19th century, this small grassy area was turned into a shrine for emigrants from Korça. Centuries ago, this field marked the beginning of the road to Manastir and Selanik, from which Albanians would depart to emigrate to Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria and America.For generations, emigrants helped drive the economic strength of Korça, and would also impact the local culture and shaping the cultural heritage of Albania.The Field of Tears keeps its old name to this day:where once there were tears for family members far away, today there is a park for visitors and citizens of Korça.
