Durrës is a city along the coast in central Albania. With 200000 inhabitants it is the second largest city in Albania and is home to the port of Durres, one of the largest harbours on the Adriatic sea with ferry connections to Italy. Founded by the Greeks in the 7th century BC, it later became part of the Roman and Byzantine empires. In the 16th century it was conquered by the Ottomans. Durrës has a pleasant city centre with a few old buildings, but is otherwise a relatively uninteresting city.
