Durres (Durrës), Albania
Durres to miasto w zachodniej Albanii położone nad Adriatykiem. Jedno z najstarszych miast w Albanii, drugie (po stolicy) pod względem liczby ludności; główny port kraju. Założone w 625 roku p.n.e. w czasach greckich kolonizacji. Około 220 r. p.n.e. przejęli je Rzymianie, nazywając je Dyrrachium. Po podziale Cesarstwa Rzymskiego w 395 roku, Dyrrachium znalazło się w Cesarstwie Bizantyńskim. W 1366 roku miasto zdobyli Serbowie. W 1501 roku Turcy włączyli miasto do Imperium Osmańskiego. Po odzyskaniu niepodległości w 1913 roku, Durrës zostało tymczasową stolicą Albanii, którą w 1920 roku przeniesiono do Tirany.
W Durres jest największy na Bałkanach rzymski amfiteatr z początku II wieku, który mógł pomieścić 15 tysięcy ludzi. Ruiny amfiteatru odkryto w 1966 roku podczas kopania studni. Gdy zakazano walk gladiatorów, miejscowa społeczność chrześcijańska przejęła amfiteatr w V wieku, tworząc pod trybunami kaplicę, zaś na arenie - cmentarz. W Durres zachowały się też pozostałości murów obronnych (wybudowane na przełomie V i VI wieku przez cesarza bizantyńskiego Anastazjusza I) oraz Wieża Wenecka.

Berat is a town located in south-central Albania and the capital of both the District of Berat and the larger County of Berat. As of 2009, the town has an estimated population of around 71,000 people. In July 2008, the old town (Mangalem district) was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
During the 18th century Berat was one the most important Albanian cities of the Ottoman Empire. In the early modern era the city was the capital of the Pashalik of Berat founded by Ahmet Kurt Pasha. Berat was incorporated in the Pashalik of Yanina after Ibrahim Pasha of Berat was defeated by Ali Pasha in 1809. In 1867, Berat became a sanjak in Yannina (Yanya) vilayet.
During the early period of Ottoman rule, Berat fell into severe decline. By the end of the 16th century it had only 710 houses. However it began to recover by the 17th century and became a major craft centre specializing in wood carving. During the 19th century, Berat played an important part in the Albanian national revival. A Greek school was operating in the city already from 1835. It became a major base of support for the League of Prizren, the late 19th century Albanian nationalist alliance, while the city was also represented in the formation of southern branch of the league in Gjirokastër. From October 23 to October 30, 1944, the second session of the Council of National Liberation of Albania was held in Berat, where the National Liberation Movement-controlled Anti-Fascist National Liberation Committee became the Provisional Democratic Government of Albania, with Enver Hoxha as its prime minister and minister of defence.Wikipedia
