Why the Balkans are a special place

Antigonea Archaeological Park, Albania

Antigonea Archaeological Park, Albania

Excavations conducted by Albanian archaeologists in the 1960s near the modern village of Saraqinishte led to the identification of the fortified city of Antigonea.

The identification is based on the discovery of fourteen bronze tesserae with the inscription "Antigoneon," found in one of the houses dating from the Hellenistic period. The site is located on a hilltop on the east side of the Drinos valley.

One potential founder of the city is Antigonos Gonatas, King of Macedonia; another and more widely accepted version is that Pyrrhus, the Molossian king, built the city in 296 BC in honor of his wife Antigone.

This article continues our in-depth analysis of markets with Ottoman origins in the Balkans

History books describe it as one of the most beautiful çarshijas * in the Balkans. In the collective memory of older Albanians it has remained the old Pazar or, more romantically, the Bazaar of the Serenades.
