An ever-expanding postcard blog

Berat

on March 8, 2014

postcards3_2_2This stunning card is also from Albania and comes this time from Dritah, a friend of Nevila. This time it shows Berat in south-central Albania – their hometown. Similarly to Korçë, Berat also has a very rich history first occupied in the 6th century BC by the Greek tribe Dexarioi. The town is renowned now for its beautiful architecture and is often referred to as the Town of a Thousand Windows due to the specific architectural style of its hillside houses. Berat is also home to a castle, a church and a mosque as well as this stunning natural beauty. Wonderful card!
