Dark tourism is a new form of tourism that can be widely applied in our country. This type of tourism has as its object the visit to destinations that carry great human drama, generally destinations related to death, fear and suffering. In scientific researches it is treated as part of cultural tourism. Throughout the tumultuous history of the Albanian state we find many moments, which encourage everyone, to show, educate, transmit, gain historical knowledge and finally raise awareness, despite the fact that these moments evoke sadness, grief and even for a target group as young people, or foreigners, arouse curiosity. What are these tourist destinations? How are they offered? What are some exploration opportunities and how is their diversity expressed? These are some of the questions addressed in the study, which are answered by being concretized in natural northeastern region of Albania, in Kukes and its surroundings. It will assess the perceptions that residents of Kukes have the possibility of developing this tourist movement within the primary tourist offers of the northeastern part of Albania. The methodology used for the realization of the paper is distinguished as: descriptive which describes the primary tourist observed offer; doing observations on the written literature in this the thematic; statistical analysis by statistically identifying perceptions on dark tourism in the sampled group. The study includes the analysis of a questionnaire which was attended by a total of 60 respondents asked mainly about their definition of this type of tourist movement, its identification in this region and the definition of tourist attractions regarded to dark tourism
