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.
