Gjiokaster, Albania is one of the most beautiful towns in the Balkans. Here you will read about things to do in Gjirokaster, why visit Gjirokaster and more!
Tirana, Berat, and Saranda you already know, but this list of ideas for where to go in Albania includes some off the radar ideas that’ll get you excited!
Don’t go to Gjirokaster. You’ve never heard of it anyway, and who would want to give up a couple of weeks of their precious annual leave on a mountainous city in Albania? It’s impossible to get to, anyway – the only nonstop UK flights go from London to Tirana, and Tirana to Gjirokaster is a four-hour drive at best and a 12-hour drive at worst, using an unreliable public transport system and often impassable roads.
Berat is more than just a UNESCO site! With its castle, food, traditional architecture, and close proximity to Ohrid, Berat Albania will blow you away!
The Lolomani dwelling, formerly the home of the Ottoman period family of that name, was once an impressive sight in the mountainside town of Gjirokastra in southern Albania.
