Korça, Bazaar of the Serenades

Korça is an Albanian town on the borders of Albania, Greece and Macedonia. It is known for its bazaar which unfortunately is now in a semi-abandonned state.

History books describe it as one of the most beautiful çarshijas * in the Balkans. In the collective memory of older Albanians it has remained the old Pazar or, more romantically, the Bazaar of the Serenades.

Korçë - The Paris of Albania

The historical town of Korçë (pronounced Core-cha) has a well-preserved historical center with cobblestone streets and many surviving villas that were built in the early 20th century. From 1916 - 1920, the town was under French control and eventually it was declared an autonomous region with French support.

The continental influence resulted in the construction of neoclassical villas, two famous cinemas and a tradition of photography and art appreciation. Korçë was known at one point as the "Paris of Albania".
