Gjirokaster Castle, Gjirokaster Reviews

  • Very nice castle/preserved ruin. Worth visiting and fun to wander around. There are awesome cannons, artillery and a tank inside. Adding to that, don't forget to visit the weapons museum inside. It's definitely worth the 200 LEK. After visiting, consider seeing the cold war tunnel (bunker).

  • Top view over the city. The museum, inside the castle, is a must. I believe they're working on the castle as most rooms are closed to the public. All I could see were thick walls, what looked like secret passages now closed, long dark corridors and some rooms in need of repair, but yes, it is worth visiting!

  • WW II exposition inside the castle make monumental view for tanks, weapons which you can handle in your hands. I am not big fan of WW II, so I didn't enjoy it so much. There is nice view for the Gjirokastra city.

  • Great place to visit. Nice view and very old monuments. Few nice place to eat great dinner. I definitely recommend it

  • Was okay but I like butrint castle and the ali pasha better. There was one really cool tank that only had 3 in the world and one is located here. And a lot of cannons which was cool.
