Berat - Key information

Berat stands as a testament to Albania’s layered history, with a cityscape that showcases a remarkable collection of architectural styles spanning centuries. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is remarkable for its well-preserved Ottoman-era houses that seem to cascade down the hillside, earning it the moniker “City of a Thousand Windows.” The city’s old quarter is a historical jewel, with an array of churches and mosques that reflect its rich religious and cultural tapestry.

Strategically positioned among hills and alongside the Osum River, Berat serves as a cultural nexus, drawing visitors keen to experience its unique heritage up close. A stroll through its cobbled lanes offers a glimpse into the past, while also revealing the vibrant everyday life of its residents. With its harmonious blend of past and present, Berat captures the essence of Albanian tradition while thriving as an active, living city.
