 The only remaining minaret of Gjirokastër (out of 14) which was not destroyed during the culture revolution.  Nobody else can describe this beautiful city with this special morbid charme better than the famous Albanian writer Ismail Kadare who was born here:  "... and for sure this was the only place in the world where somebody […]

  The previous night we had spent next to an ancient bridge ... only the next morning a passer-by informed us that this site is "famous" for dangerous falling rocks from the nearby cliff. Well, we survived!     We set off after a brief brekkie ... the tourist information in the next village is nor real help for our […]

  Actually, we don't quite like too touristy sights, but we thought that we could not go to Greece and leave out Meteora. To be honest: we are totally impressed and this place surely is worth visiting even though it is touristy.
