Gjirokastër. View over the Old Town

Welcome to the city of Gjirokastër, a museum under the open sky. This place is unique because it’s whole old town has been added to the List of the World Heritage Sites. Gjirokastër’s old part represents a perfectly preserved town built under the Ottoman Empire.

Maybe this city with its tower-looking houses, old town, narrow streets leading up to the market square together with its many ancient Orthodox churches will encourage you to visit this surprisingly mysterious country of Albania.

Today there are too many unpleasant rumors about this country. However, those tourists who dare to come here, never feel disappointed. Albania is a country with many beautiful places, stunning views, great architectural monuments and, last but not least, very reasonable level of prices.
