The town is known for having been an important cultural center since 1300 and in the mid 18th century hosted the first printing press in the region during Ottoman Empire outside Istanbul, educational institutions and more than 20 churches. Nowadays, are left only a few churches, the Monastery of St. John the Baptist, Church of St. Mary, Church of St. Athanasius and Church of St. Nicholas, among others. After a day of visits, come back to Stone Villas Voskopoja, light the fireplace and enjoy the views -and snow- from windows while drinking a hot drink.
