Berat is a fascinating medieval town in central Albania. Beneath the commanding hilltop fortress lies the old town divided by the Osumi river into two neighborhoods - Gorica and Mangalem. Mangalem is the part right beneath the fortress and is predominantly Muslim, while across the river is predominantly an Orthodox quarter of Gorica. Both communities live in harmony and peace. During the Ottoman era, those not willing to embrace Islam, had to pay higher taxes to retain their religion. Both neighborhoods are fantastic to explore with unique architecture - houses so close one to another, set on an elevated terrain one window above the another, hence the city's nickname "town of 1000 windows".

Very beautiful ancient city. Is a relic of the Ottoman era. We can enjoy the ancient housing and its surroundings. At the top there is a castle that is not less interesting. Very easy to reach from Tirana. Only 1 hour and 30 minutes (100km). Can use a taxi or take a tour that is widely offered in the city of Tirana ...

After visiting the fortress, we stopped at the main road to view the ancient quarter of Ottoman houses and buildings on the side of a hill that faces the Osum River. From a distance, the houses looked spectacular with its white-washed walls with many windows, earning it the town with a thousand windows and it is listed in the UNESCO world heritage sites. Due to time constraint, we only stop to take some photos before we left for Tirana. It is an experience not to be missed, if one is in Berat.

Nice to look at from afar and to wander round and get lost in, albeit rather steep! It provides the iconic backdrop of berat.

We stayed in the old town. Entrance to the castle through the main gate is free after 16:00 It is better to go to the castle by car, there is free parking - it is difficult to climb the hill, especially if you have children and a stroller. We enjoyed your visit to this wonderful city! We rented a car for a trip through EasyRentCars - we like their user-friendly interface and reasonable prices.
