The new Centre is located just outside the Albanian capital of Tirana and is surrounded by lakes and mountains, creating a quiet and idyllic place for families to visit.The Centre will deliver early intervention using Applied Behavior Analysis, as well as diagnostic services by trained multidisciplinary teams.It has the second most populous city proper in the country, but sits at the centre of Italy's largest urban and metropolitan area.Prostitution is rife in the night streets around mid and large towns.From here, we head south taking in a mixture of military heritage, such as the ancient fortress at Elbasan or the National Museum of Weapons located in Gjirokaster fort which was not to be argued with, located ominously on a remote mountain slope.Most impressively of all things militia, however, is the mediaeval citadel of Kruj the site of the resistance made to the omnipotent Ottomans.Performances of renowned world composers are regularly performed.
Its old town is inscribed on the World Heritage List as "a rare example of a well-preserved Ottoman town, built by farmers of large estate." Gjirokaster is situated in a valley between the Gjere mountains and the Drino River, at 300 m (984 ft) above sea level.
It is not all battle scars on this trip, however, with some extraordinary natural heritage to explore as well.
We spend some time at Pogradec on the shores of the great Lake Ohrid, surrounded by mountains.
The city is overlooked by the Gjirokaster Castle where Gjirokaster National Folklore Festival is held every five years.
Gjirokaster is the birthplace of former Albanian communist leader Enver Hoxha and notable writer Ismail Kadare. The coexistence of religious and cultural communities over several centuries, beginning in the 4th century BC into the 18th century is apparent in Berat.
