The Tirana city government gave the southern Serbian town of Bujanovac more than half a million Euro to build a gym in an elementary school.

The payment from the capital of Albania was confirmed by Bujanovac Mayor Nagip Arifi, local media reported. Bujanovac has a large ethnic Albanian population.

“The city of Tirana, that is Mayor Erion Veliaj has transferred 550,000 Euro to the municipality of Bujanovac to build a gym. Thank you Tirana,” Arifi said adding that a tender will be called for the project.

Tirana Mayor Veliaj promised the money to Bujanovac town assembly President Enver Ramadani last October.
