According to the fine people at the Japanese Association of Travel Agents (JATA), Albania’s southern town Berat is among the 30 prettiest towns in Europe
It was challenged to come up with 30 smaller destinations to promote to holidaymakers. This is what they came up with (and there’s only one in Britain).
“Mangalem, the city of Berat’s old town, sits on the banks of the river Osum and is a Unesco World Heritage Site. In medieval times it was a frontier town of the Byzantine Empire, to which its citadel testifies.”
