Excursions – Albania is not a large country and therefore you can make easy excursions throughout the country. With Albania’s turbulent past, there are numerous interesting places from all sorts of periods for you to visit. The towns and villages make a desolate impression at first glance, but you can see interesting structures from the various culture periods. In the Albanian cities the old Ottoman core is mostly preserved; Like in Berat and Gjirokaster. The mountain villages have a special character with their stone houses. This construction is very different from the villages on the coast.
In Albania there are many antique fortresses from different historical periods that have been preserved. Besides that, there are many churches, monasteries and fortresses from the Byzantine period. From the time of the Ottomans you can still see mosques and Koranic schools. A strong presence in the landscape of Albania are the so-called ‘mushrooms’. These are gun turrets from the Communist time.
