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. Add Berat and other Albania destinations to your travel plans using our Albania vacation route planner.

Where to stay

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.
