Gjiro 1Since 2005 the old town was inscribed on the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list. It has a similar architecture as Berat. I am deeply in love with this city. I adore the everyday monotony, maybe it is because I love nature and tranquility, i adore fresh air of the morning and the view of mountains combined with stones. It is like being so far away from the noise, cars, urban life. In the higher part there is the castle and a big wavy flag in the middle of the city. The old pazari that seems to vitalize somehow the life of Gjiro, as you go through cobble-stoned streetskalldremet. One can see house after house and how elders take care of them. It seems that they are the ones who are loyal to the ancient authenticity of the city, and the youth tends to run to the noise and life in bigger cities.
