"Ersekë" or "Erseka" ( Argonaut 1965.)is a town in southeastern Albania. Founded in the 19th century, Erseka is the capital of the Kolonjë District. Situated at the foot of the Gramos mountains, it is a small alpine town at 1050 meters in altitude, making it the highest town in Albania.


The Kolonja range was originally inhabited by the Dassaretae, the most northerly of the Epirot Greek tribes.Smith, William (2006). A New Classical Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography, Mythology and Geography. Whitefish, MT, USA: Kessinger Publishing, LLC, page 423.

Culture, Music and Arts
The "Fan Stilian Noli" center hosts several artistic and cultural shows throughout the year. Its main theater of 400 seats hosts performances by various groups from Korçë, Tirana and local artists. The ethnographic museum also houses a collection of traditional costumes, textiles and other crafts, unique to the Erseka region.

In the center of the town is an obelisk dedicated to Odise Paskali, the Kolonjar Martyr of the Renaissance. Paskali, a sculptor, was recognized as a "Master Sculptor for Albania" and inaugurated on 28 November 1938.

Besides cultural activities, the town has its own football team KS Gramozi Ersekë and a stadium with a capacity of 6,000 spectators.

Erseka-Kolonja is known for its apple production throughout Albania. Of the 133 hectares allocated to orchards, 119 is set aside for apple farms, producing about 947 tons a year. With over 1300 hectares of productive land still unused, fruit tree farmers are trained and familiar with apple agro-technology and have received fruit saplings from countries like Greece and the Republic of Macedonia. There are two nurseries that produce saplings for apples, yielding 800 saplings a year.

The region is also known for its honey production. Formed a few years ago, the Beekeeping Association consists of 70 beekeepers and produces 4000 kg of honey a year. With over 3080 hectares used for farming, the region yields about 4500 tons of cereal grain, 2350 tons of wheat and 2080 tons of corn a year. About 66,000 tons of alfalfa and forage crops are produced, which are used for livestock cultivation. The region has three wheat factories for milling, including five centers for mass bread production. In addition, medical plants can be found in the region. Currently they are cultivated and gathered privately.

With the region"s vast pasture land, the quality of the region"s livestock production is high. Erseka-Kolonja farmers currently breed about 5500 cattle, 4200 cows, 40,000 sheep and 22,000 goats. Its livestock produces about 98,500 kv of milk a year and 1451 tons of meat. Last year, farmers worked with UPRA, France and SBI Korce. They imported Tanranteze cattle stock, which has led to increases in the production of milk and meat. Erseka has one milk/cheese factory and several points of collection and treatment of milk.

There are 250 businesses registered with the municipality. There are 6 construction firms, 16 transportation firms and a private bus company. Erseka is also renowned for its woodcrafts, stone carving and carpet weaving tradition.
