The city of Gjirokastër in the southern part of Albania has several claims to fame. Besides being the birthplace of two of the most important Albanians – communist dictator Enver Hoxha and world-renowned writer Ismail Kadare, the city also brings together different elements of the country’s mixed history, representing its Byzantine, Ottoman and Communist pasts. Sometimes called "the City of Stone" is a rare example of a well preserved Ottoman town, built around 13th century castle - oner of the biggest in the Balkans. The town is famous for the tall fortified tower houses built along steep sides of the Drino valley which are reached by a winding network of cobbled streets and roads. The City was subsribed into UNESCO World Heritage site. [edit text]  [editors]
