Photo Essay – Berat Castle

Berat is a city in south-central Albania.Its historical centre is mentioned on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Lars and I decided to start our visit at Berat Castle, a 13th century fortress with churches and mosques.

We did not get very far, however. Lars received a telephone call from his sister, announcing the death of their mother. Although we knew that her health was quite poor, her death came as a shock…

One day we will return to Berat and finish what we started.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever thought about going to Albania, but you know me and history – this looks interesting.

      Albania is not a touristic destination, but if you are interested in history, you should give it a try. Durrës has got some archeological museums and Sarande is interesting as well.


Let us know what you think!
