Photographer's Note

Very simple houses but with the colours of windows I find them very attractive. I saw these houses in Fier going to Berat. On my way back I had my camera ready. The picture made from the bus.

Fier (definite Albanian form: Fieri) is a city and a municipality in Fier County in southwest Albania. Fier is 11 km from the ruins of the ancient city of Apollonia. The population of the former municipality at the 2011 census was 85,845.

Geographically, it is located on the center of the country surrounded by hills. The city is located some 16 kilometres east of the Adriatic Sea and 100 kilometres south of Tirana.

The ruins of Apollonia are situated in the Fier region. Apollonia was founded in 588 BCE by Greek colonists from Corfu and Corinth on a site initially occupied by Illyrian tribes.

Fier itself is not specially interesting for tourists, it is a industrial town. But even there one can find something nice.
Unfortunately, I had no time for Apollonia :(.
