Llogara tourist village, natural park, Albania
Leaving Vlora through the scenic coastal road to Saranda you will climb up towards the Pass of Llogara, a National Park covered by dense forest of pine trees, 1027 m above sea level. There is a tourist village with wooden made villas. Llogara is an excellent place for air sports such as paragliding, delta plan etc. Some European meetings of air sports are organized there. The mountain is very close to the beach, so you can combine the mountain climate with the warm of the sea.

Vlora Beach, Albanian Riviera At the north direction of Vlora there is the Lagoon of Narta, which is the second in Albania in terms of size. It is a worth visiting place for the nature lovers. The lagoon is rich in species of water fowls and fish. On the shore of the lagoon there are Narta and Zverneci villages, which are well known for their local wine.

In the small island in front of Zverneci there is a Byzantine church of Saint Maria (XVI century). The island is covered by dense Mediterranean woods and together with the cape of Triporti makes a very nice natural place.

The Museum of Independence: reflects the stern struggle of the Albanian's for freedom and independence, the events that brought about the raising of the flag on the 28th November l912, when Albania was proclaimed an independent state.

The Mosque of Muradije, which was built in 1542 by the famous Albania architect Mimar Sinani (who built the grandiose Suleymanie Mosque in Istanbul).
