really worth a visit. the town surrounding is very nice. There are some kitchy shops nearby that sell souvineers. Great prices on things like hand woven rugs. Beer in the little cafes is 1E.

Agree with the kitschy comment, but the bazaar is like stepping back in time - as is the castle and surrounding area. A good place for “traditional” Albanian souvenirs. You’ll find them elsewhere, but this is a great all-in-one selection. Stop to watch the ladies weaving rugs. If I could have found a way to ship one home, I would have.
