Albania II

Postcard showing the Citadel of Berati, a town in central Albania famous for its historic architecture. In fact, it was one of the two towns spared by former dictator Enver Hoxha's modernisation campaigns and, as such,  has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site together with the other spared city, Gjirokastra. The Citadel was founded by Illyrians in the third century BC on the site of an even earlier fortress!
