Beautiful. The roofs are very distinctive. Is that the main reason to be on the list? Or is there something special about the castle?

the whole city is in unesco, it's one of the 50 cities actually. It's considered "the museum city" of Gjirokastra so basically the whole city is like a large museum especially when you enter the older part of the city which is always ascending to the castle. The architecture is the same throughout the old part of the city, so well organized. The city is very charming, i've been there several times and love it there

Once I've already seen Gjirokastra (on TV); it looks like town from a fairy-tale, or as Te dhjefsha SSC expressed himself, very charming.

Btw, how many inhabitants does Gjirokastra have?

I see new houses popping up here and there in the city. What are they going to do about it to preserve that Fairy tale like image?
