Korçë is the eighth-most populous city of the Republic of Albania and the seat of Korçë County and Korçë Municipality. It stands on a plateau some 850 m (2,789 ft) above sea level, surrounded by the Morava Mountains. The area of the Old Bazaar, including the Mirahori Mosque, is considered the city’s urban core. Founded by a local Ottoman Albanian lord, Ilias Bey Mirahori, the metropolitan area of Korçë dates back to the late 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century; however, its actual physiognomy was realized in the 19th century, during a period that corresponds with the rapid growth and development of the city. The Old Bazaar has played a dominant role in Albania’s market history. Korçë is the largest city in eastern Albania and an important cultural and industrial center.
