Welcome in Korca! Korca is considered the birthplace of Albania’s literary and artistic identity and city’s charm and traditions continue to reflect this heritage. Korca’s urban architecture, with its Ottoman, French and Arromanian influences, wide tree-lined boulevards and ample parks provide a completely unique experience in Albania. The city’s markets, monuments, and mosques and churches (dating back to early Byzantine and Ottoman times) highlight the significance of this important Balkan crossroads city. Originally an artisan and trading hub in the 15th century, modern-day Korca is one of Albania’s largest economic, cultural and commercial centers. Your guide will make sure you see the city’s highlights, such as its impressive Cathedral, Museum of Medieval Art and a traditional market, where you can sample a typical Korka Lakror pie. Outside of the city you can experience the splendor of Bozdoveci National Park, pay a visit to the ancient monasteries of Voskopoja, and listen to traditional live music in the mountain village of Dardha.
