Get to know Berat (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Berat.

Guess what? Berat is also named and spelled Berati - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Berat, ”The Town of a Thousand Windows,” is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a rare example of an architectural character typical of Ottoman period, though the earliest traces of settlement date from the twenty-sixth century to the eighteenth century BC. Its rich historical and cultural heritage makes it well worth a visit for few days.

The cobbled streets taking you back to Ottoman times make Berat an amazing outdoor museum. The town can be easily toured on foot, but reaching the Kala Castle on the top of the hill requires some climbing. Numerous museums feature not only art but also depict the daily life of the earlier inhabitants of the area. Mosques and churches situated next to each other make Berat feel like an interesting melting pot of cultures and religions.

Accommodation choices include few hostels in Berat; some hotels; and numerous homestays, guesthouses, and B&Bs. At least hotels and hostels in Berat are likely to provide Wi-Fi while private house owners renting rooms for travelers can usually prepare dinners on request. Advance booking is highly recommended in high season from the middle of June to late August. If needed, the Berat Tourist Information Office will help you find a bed.

Culinary experiences are guaranteed in Berat -- at least fresh figs, olives, and the local Raki spirit must be tried; you can find these in any of the restaurants inside the Kala Castle. If you're interested in local wine making, ask around for winery tours.

Berat can be easily reached by bus or furgon (minibus without fixed schedules) from Tirana (two hours) or Sarandë (six hours). There is an international bus connection to Athens, Greece, as well.
