Overview
The most beautiful thing to admire in Gjirokaster is its enchanting old town, which has been listed among UNESCO’s world heritage sites. As soon as you step onto its streets, you’ll understand why Gjirokaster is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Albania and the Balkans. Of course, we will visit the castle which is on top of a hill and from there the landscape is beautiful, you need to see it. The old bazaar was an important market center for agricultural products from the region, nowadays the area is the heart of the touristic interest with many shops, souvenirs, artisan activities, and bars and restaurants.
