Shishtavec (Cyrillic: Шиштавец) is a village in Kukës County in northeastern Albania. It was also the seat of the former municipality of the same name. At the 2015 local government reform it became part of the municipality Kukës.[1]

The village consists of around 300 households with over 1,800 Gorani inhabitants. The area is part of the wider Gora region, most of it lies in the other side of the border (today Kosovo).

The Gorani population in Albania identifies itself mostly with the Albanians, unlike the Gorani inhabitants of Kosovo and Macedonia. There are recent attempts to recognize them as forming their own minority group, as with others who identify with Bulgaria, Serbia, and Macedonia.

Roughly 250 acres of potatoes are planted annually in Shishtavec.[2]

According to the 2011 census, 68.3% of the municipality identified ethnically as Albanian, while 7.7% identified as Macedonian. The remainder did not declare an ethnicity.[3]
