Ancient City of B Y L I S - I LLYRIAN / A L B A N I A N



link: http://index.byllis-al.com/

Bylis (in today Mallakastra) which is a very important archeological center in Albania, is one of ancient Illyrian citys inhabited by the tribe of Bylliones. Established in the third century B.C., Bylis flourished as a political, economic, and cultural center of the community. The city was governed by an annual council of civil servants. In 230-146 B.C., it introduced bronze coins, which were used throughout this region. The handicrafts from the workshops of Bylis were competing with the handicrafts of Apollonia.
The surrounding wall of Bylis, built in the second quarter of the fourth century B.C., is very well-preserved. It is 2250 m long, 3.5 m wide and 8-9 m high and it surrounds an area of 30 ha. The wall is triangular. The city consisted of several quarters and objects, such as the agora, which sheltered the inhabitants of the villages and their wealth in the event of war.
It is very interesting to see:
- The theatre, which is larger than that of Butrint and was built in the middle of the third century B.C. in the southeast corner of the agora. Visitors entering from the 4th entrance would immediately see the theater and the stadium. At the entrance of the theater there are two platforms, which used to display statues, one of which is thought to have been that of Dionysus. The steps of the theater are semicircle-shaped, with a diameter of 78 m. The theater had 40 steps accommodating an audience of 7,500 people which makes it the 3rd largest ancient theatre in Albania after Apollonia and Foinik.

- the Stoa which originally was a 2 floor building, an open structure with pillars on one side, measuring 60 m x 11.4 m, is still partly preserved today.

- The monumental fountain of the 3rd century.

- Several stadium elements.

- Medieval cultural objects such as Basilica (is 33 m long and 22.8 m wide)that manifest a significant continuity in the cultural field. Basilica it came by a Roman-era from around the year 400 which had some interesting floor mosaics. One of them shows left-facing swastika (indo-european in origin) surrounded by yin-yangs, (can be found in both Hindu and Buddhist tradition) and represents peace, and yinyangs are a symbol for a balance.
In the Church of Bylis which was build on the IV-th century AD, the mosaics have Ilirian (Illyrian) motifs which for the church later where known as pagan ones. Inside, visitors can observe interesting mosaics, reflecting geometrical shapes, plants, and people. The same(exactly the same) symbols of Grapes, Snake, and blu Bird were used across the houses and places in Ilirian times till today.

South of Basilica C is the college (high school), with a rectangular layout and a series of alcoves located in the inner yard. This structure was constructed in the third century B.C.

The cathedral is a very interesting object, consisting of the basilica, the baptistery, and the diocese complex. It is one of the most important monuments of the ancient city of Bylis. This cathedral underwent several reconstructions in the fourth century A.D., in 470, and in 547. After every reconstruction, a new part was added to the monument. The basilica of the cathedral, which is 67 m long, has a much more affluent configuration than the other basilicas of Bylis. The walls of Cathedral were covered in several frescoes, but only those of geometrical shapes still remain intact. At the beginning of the fifth century, the Episcopate of Bylis and Apollonia was settled in Bylis.

- The Justinian thermal baths are of rectangular shape measuring 24.5 m x 6.4 m. Built in the middle of the third century, the stadium represents a unique solution compared to stadiums in other ancient cities. Due to the terrain, only one side of it leans against the slant of the hill. This stadium has 19 steps with a height of 0.3 m and a width of 0.4 m each. The measurements indicate that the audience could only stand. Several cards bearing the inscription Bullis and a hole in the middle have been found in the southeastern part of this stadium during excavations. They are in fact tickets, which were tied with a rope and worn around the waist, considering that the attire of the time did not have pockets.

Dardania ne Shkup

Në Kalanë e Shkupit janë zbuluar themelet e shtëpive të para dardane, të ndërtuara që para tre mijë vjetëve. Historianët shqiptarë thonë se me këtë është vërtetuar edhe një herë historikisht prania e elementit shqiptar në Shkup. Nga ana tjetër, arkeologet maqedonas duke hezituar të pranojnë realitetin e artefakteve të gjetura, thonë se objektet e gjetura i takojnë periudhës ne të cilën nuk ka pasur fise të përcaktuara etnikisht.

Tourism in Albania ....

Albania is a country of natural beauty which includes sandy white Mediterranean beaches, rocky mountains, fertile plains, lakes, natural monuments, and remote areas. According to the Minister of Tourism, Cultural Affairs and Youth , the country receives approximately 1.098.765 foreign visitors per year and it is growing by 19% every year.

Albania is home to three World Heritage Sites: * Butrint, an ancient city * Gjirokastër, a well-preserved Illyrian town * Berat, the 'town of a thousand and one windows'
The Adriatic coast starts in the delta of Buna river by the city of Shkodra. Once upon a time, this was a Dalmatian coast with deep waters and a number of islands. Now it has shallow waters as a result of the delta of the country's largest rivers. A number of fields exist to the south of Buna. The formation of snaking underwater beds has created a number of bays and lagoons. The delta continues to grow every year by several meters. This land expansion is larger in the south in Myzeqe and slower in the north near Lezha. This evolution has increased the tourist value of the area with beaches such as: Velipoja, Shengjini, Kune, Gjiri Lalzit, Durresi, Golemi, Mali Robit, Spille, Divjaka, Darezeza and Plazhi i Ri Vlorë.


By the Adriatic coast you will find clean sea waters, high quality service, traditional and modern cuisine, lagoons, lakes and rivers. There are great possibilities for nature lovers, eco-tourists and others. Hunting too can be practiced in the region's rich ecosystem.

Ionian coast

It starts in Uji i Ftohtë (Cold Water) in Vlora and continues with few interruptions all the way to the Cape of Stillo. It has a high abrasive intensity because the sea is deep while river deltas are lacking. As a result, waves on the Ionian can reach up to 4 m while the coastline is rocky. On the coast you will find a number of small bays and comfortable beaches. Some of them are rarely visited due to the difficult access roads which may make your experience all the more intimate.

Some large tectonic bays are: Vlora Bay, Porto Palermo, Saranda Bay etc. Here you can dive, sail, fish etc.

The Albanian Riviera coastline has high temperatures and therefore a subtropical flora. The Riviera is one of the most picturesque places of the Mediterranean with a lot of tourist potential. In the last few years, the number of visitors has increased exponentially.

The presence of lakes, lagoons, rivers, deltas and seas in Albania points towards the development of water tourism. The Mediterranean climate offers ideal conditions for holidays in the deltas as well as elsewhere on the coast. Especially in the south, tourists start visiting the beaches in late April and stop in October.
Albanian Mountain and Rural Tourism

The territory of Albania has several regions where mountain and rural tourism is well-developed. Among the most important are:

Albanian Alps: Western Alps - Razëm - Bogë - Theth - Vermosh
Razëm
The journey to this mountainous area begins from the city of Shkodra and leads to the closest stop 41 km away from Shkodra the city of Razma, situated on a blackberry hill at the feet of the Veleçik Mountain. Razma stands amid infinite forests of pines and birch trees. There are also many meadows and amazing alpine pastures. The journey to Razma is possible even in the winter when the snow is at its highest level. There are several hotels already and others are on their way to completion. The most common activities are excursions, mountain climbing, skiing, and. during the summer, camping.
