About an hour drive away from Pogradec is the village of Voskopojë. It is known for a long history with many, many churches over the past few centuries. A friend and I drove up there to wander around a bit and explore some of the churches that are 300+ years old!

Dardha, destinacioni turistik i dimrit - News, Lajme - Vizion Plus
I ndodhur vetëm 15 km larg qytetit të Korçë, fshati Dardhe është një nga destinacionet e preferuara të turistëve ne dimër. Bora e rënë javën e fundit, duket se e ka vështirësuar paksa rrugën, por jo aq sa ajo te behet e pakalueshme, sidomos per te arritur pistën e skive. Shumë familje kanë zgjedhur Dardhën për të kaluar fundjavën, sidomos per te ushtruar sportet dimërore. Kjo është Marina Rama një vizitore e apasionuar pas skive. Ajo është nga Tirana dhe tregon se vjen shpesh. Mungesa e infrastrukturës bën që shumë shqiptarë t’i drejtohen pistave te skive ne vendet fqinje si Maqedoni, Kosove apo Mali i Zi. Thuajse te gjitha zonat malore ne Shqipëri jane te mbuluara nga bora, por fatkeqësisht ato nuk ofrojnë vende te posaçme për sportet dimërore.
