Conference Location: Beautiful Durres!

The city was found by Greeks in the 7th century B.C. and was first called Epidamn. For a long period of time the city was the largest seaport on the Adriatic. Durres had a rather stormy history with often change of power, that without any doubt had an impact on the cities architecture. The city was occupied by the Romans who changed its name to Dirrahhi. The famous road – Via Egnatia  - connecting the city and Constantinople ( 800 km) was built in this period.
After the conquering of Constantinople in 1204 the city was renamed to Durazzo, survived the period of Frankokratia and than was a Turkish possession until the 20th century.
The city got its final name in the 80s. The city was ruined by earthquakes several times. Durres was rebuilt each time and remained its cultural and historical meaning.

There are many architectural monuments in Durres and its surroundings, that can tell you the stormy history of the city.
The main one is the Roman amphitheatre, built in the 2nd century B.C. Only the third part of it remained until our days, but the rest was restored by the sketches and schemes.
On the main squire you can see the Fatih mosque, which is more than 500 years old.The city still has the famous Roman baths which are in total function – baths with cold and hot water and the “fish” pool.
