Vlore - THINGS TO DO
Narta Lagoon, a couple of miles to the north of Vlore, is ideal for nature lovers and bird watchers. Rich marine life, sand dunes, pleasant views and blissful calmness, here you will feel perfectly at ease, reconnected with nature and yourself.
Sazan Island to the south of Vlore is altogether different. It is a defunct military base, once called “Russia’s secret Gibraltar”. In addition to the island’s solitary bays and lush greenery, you come across ruins, tunnels and bunkers. You can’t help but feel stirred by the eerie appeal of this place!
If you are into ancient history, there is another spot to the south of Vlore you would not want to miss – Lepenice, some 15 km inland, 800 metres above the sea level, with post-Paleolithic cave art. The Mosque of Muradie, historic and ethnographic museums are attractions within the city itself.
