Overview

A Jeep day tour in Berat, known as the city of 1001 windows or the museum city, is one of the oldest and most beautiful places in Albania, with a settlement having existed there since the 6th century BC. Come along on this day tour for the wine tasting in a small local tavern. Then wander the winding streets of the picturesque town of Berat and visit the castle of 20 churches.

The city lies on the banks of river Osumi and it’s surrounded by mountains. In the background of the city, you can see the mountain of Tomorr. Behind the mountain is a legend that says that the mountain was a giant who fought with another giant called Shpirag (the other mountain) over a girl. For this reason, the giants killed each other and became mountains. And the girl drowned in her tears and became the Osumi River.

The people of Berat were first called Illyrians, then Arbër, and finally Albanians. Located in central Albania, Berat bears witness to the coexistence of various religious and cultural communities down the centuries. It features a castle, locally known as the Kala, most of which was built in the 13th century, although its origins date back to the 4th century BC. The citadel area numbers many Byzantine churches, mainly from the 13th century. As well as several mosques built under the Ottoman era which began in 1417.
