Travel Around Albania

GJIROKASTRA CITY

The origin of the city starts with the castle of Gjirokastra, built in IV century AD.The main characteristic of Gjirokastra is the intensive use of stone in building the houses, which look like small fortresses, the streets of cobblestone, which all lead to Bazaar.

BLUE EYE - SARANDE

The Blue Eye (Syri i Kaltër in Albanian) is a water spring and initial water source of the Bistricë, a 25 km long river which ends in the Ionian Seat just south of Saranda. The source is a natural phenomenon with a depth of at least 50 meters, the deepest any diver has been able to go, so the actual depth is even unknown.

LEKURSI CASTLE - SARANDE

Lekursi Castle is located on Lekursi Hill and can only be reached via a small road that goes around the back of the hill. From the center of Saranda it’s about 3 to 4 kilometers to the castle and if you decide to hike up the hill, this will take you approximately 45 minutes to an hour. The asphated road is in a good condition so you can easily drive there and there is plenty of space to park as well.

MESOPOTAM MONASTERY

The monastery is thought to have been built in 1224 or 1225. It was once enclosed by a circular wall which is today only partly preserved. Its double apse makes it unique in its genre, and it is thought of as this was due to the monastery being used by two religious rites (Catholic and Orthodox).

THERMAL WATERS BENJAT PERMET

The thermal waters of Benja (Bënjë) are natural sulfur springs with water rising up through deep tectonic cracks. In total there are 6 springs with each having water following a natural way up into a stone bath. You can find these thermal baths on both sides alongside the Lengarica Canyon. The biggest and most famous bath is next to the iconic Kadiut Bridge at the start of the Lengarica Canyon, so obviously, this is also the busiest one. You can find the other, smaller baths further up in the canyon.

VJOSA RIVER

Today, the Vjosa River in Albania, one of the last wild rivers of Europe is declared a National Park by the Albanian Government, becoming the first Wild River National Park in Europe. In future, the Vjosa will be conserved as a living, free-flowing river, to the benefit of people and nature. This is the result of a unique collaboration between the Albanian Government, local and international experts, environmental NGOs from the Save the Blue Heart of Europe campaign, IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature), and outdoor clothing company Patagonia.

PERMETI TOWN

The city of Roses is one of the cities of Gjirokastrër district. Përmet is located in a mountainous and hilly area with very broken and diverse relief, where the peak of Paping on mount Nëmërçka is prominent. It is located in the southeast of Albania and borders to the south by Gjirokastra; with Skrapar and Berat to the North, Kolonja to the east and Tepelena to the west.

OTTOMAN BRIDGE

The Kadiut Bridge is an old Ottoman stone footbridge over the Lengarica River near Përmet. The bridge was built in the 18th century and marks the beginning of the magnificent Lengarica Canyon. Around the bridge, you’ll also find the Benja Thermal Baths.
