Being heavily influenced by two major cultures you can imagine stunning architecture left over the years with the inclusion Amphitheater of Duress which is protected by UNESCO's World Heritage Site.
Inside the Byzantine city walls that surround the city you can experience an interplay of many influential cultures because of geographical importance of the location itself, including a modern part of the city which expansion was prompted by a devastating earthquake in 1926.
The perfect Adriatic climate and hefty foreign investments in recent years have made Durres into emerging tourist location which has quickly risen into one of the best attractions that this part of the world has to offer.
