    Summer house ?

    Summer house ?

    Favorite thing: Besides the large house shown on a previous tip, most other houses are much smaller; There is a fair number of houses that have been built in the past few years. Some are permanently inhabited, others seem to be owned by citizens that make their living in some large city, for example in Korcë, in Tiranë or in Salonique.

    Fountain, Rruga Shën Kolli

    Fountain, Rruga Sh��n Kolli

    Favorite thing: This nice fountain flows on the side of the main square, on Rruga Shën Kolli (Saint Nicholas street). Voskopojë is wat ered by several streams and there is plenty of water. This is one reason why the city was able to grow in the XVIIIth.

    Rruga Shën Kolli leads to … Kisha Shën Kolli ! Not a surprise !

    Outstanding new house
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: This outstanding new house stands in the middle of the village, in front of the main square. It has been built in the local style and is not yet completely finished. It is so large that my wild guess is that it might be designed for a hotel.

    Voskopojë

    Voskopoj��

    Favorite thing: The city of Voskopojë spreads on a plateau. When arriving, the road overhangs the city and gives a general view on the city. It is difficult to imagine that back in the XVIIIth, it was such a large city, so high in the mountains. Its inhabitants, the Vlachs lived on farming and rising ship. They became famous for wool work, began to trade wool, some went abroad and made their wealth in cotton trade with Egypt.

    Bridge on the old road
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The road from Korcë to Voskopojë has been recently improved and is now wide and excellent. Remains of the old road, much narrower and winding can be seen from time to time; Here is a bridge, still in good condition, but without any sides !

    The third photo shows the new road.
