Excellent place must see if you are in Albania
I have travelled with one of my best friends to Albania in July and August 2021. I found the country very interesting. Last days of our trip, we stayed for one night in Gjirokaster which i found beyond charming. Probably you should consider around 2 nights if you want to have a thorough feel of the town. The prices are really attractive, the old ottoman town is classy, the view is great. You can go up on the hills and have a spectacular view of the valley filled with old ottoman stone houses. Far down on the bottom of the cauldron that mountains create, you can see the new town with quite communist buildings. On the other side, a spectacular landscape shows off - typical mountains, little covered with trees. The view is fantastic. I totally recommend this town for people that want to really want to take a break from the agitated western world.
The city has the sweetest balkan vibe with grape arcades over the terraces of the restaurants, sweet breeze, figues, flowers. The ottoman vibe which is very authentic here (as it is in the city of Berat) makes the experience very exotic. Prices are very good so you can take advantage of lux hotels with magnificent views. Dont forget to eat their balls of rice with mint which are very good, a very interesting taste. I would definitely come back from time to time, for quality and low cost vacations here.
