  • For me it is particularly fascinating and surveying this mosque, also called Mosque Bazaar, just because it is located in the old quarter of the city that bears the same name. It was built in 1757, Ottoman and then from 1973 has become a cultural monument. Was exactly why it was destroyed in the period of the Communist regime. I saw the exterior and I are facing the entrance, but I dared not enter without permission from anyone. has no special artistic merits, but it's still original and characteristic of Ottoman culture.

  • ... but it's a pretty simple mosque, with no really interesting or outstanding architectural features. When I was there, on a hot afternoon late in Ramadan, the few people inside were napping.  more »
  • Since we're here, after lunch at the tavern Kuka, might as well go see the mosque which is next... This is one of the few remaining old mosques in Albania.

Where to stay in Gjirokaster

As a World Heritage Site, Gjirokaster attracts a fair number of tourists. However, there are a limited number of hotels, and even fewer hostels. The town is divided into two sections: the atmospheric old town is up on a hill, and the newer part is down below in the valley. Most of the historical attractions lie in the old town; staying here puts you within easy reach and saves you a daily walk or taxi ride up and down the hill.
