Berat

Trip Planner Europe  /  Albania  /  Berat County  /  Berat

Town of a Thousand Windows

A rare example of well-preserved Ottoman style, Berat is a World Heritage Site. Situated in central Albania, this town boasts a number of notable historic structures set against a striking mountain backdrop. Berat is home to 13th-century Byzantine churches, 15th-century Ottoman mosques, and a famous castle dating back to the 4th century. While here, take note of the white Ottoman-style homes on the hillside, which give Berat its nickname of "Town of a thousand windows." Explore the city's charming old quarters and the new town, marked by the university dome. Berat is in Berat County.

Where to stay in Berat

Berat doesn’t experience a large number of tourists, as reflected in the limited accommodation choices. Still, you can find inexpensive hostels and higher-end hotels in decent locations. The town’s main attraction is the well-preserved Ottoman center, and no matter where you stay, you won’t be a far walk. Be prepared to conquer some hills, though: Berat's hub lies in the valley between two steep hills, where most of the accommodations are.
