The Pearl of Albanian coastline

Saranda is the pearl of the Albanian coastline, a small beautiful town in southern Albania, situated in a gorgeous bay in the shape of a horseshoe.

The city has an amazing location, situated between the mountains and the Ionian Sea, across the road from the northeastern part of the island of Corfu, only 26 kilometers away from the border with Greece.

Amazing Natural Phenomenon

The Blue Eye is a water spring, a big karst hole located between the town of Saranda and Gjirokastër in Albania.

Blue Eye

It is a natural phenomenon which is generated as a result of underground water. The hole, from which the water flows out, was never fully investigated.

It has an oval shape. In the center of the hole the water is dark blue and light blue at the sides, and it looks like a human eye.

Local people are saying that the name of the spring was given by an Italian engineer who said that this phenomenon was reminding him of the eyes of His beloved one.

According to the claims of the divers, they reached 50 meters in depth, but failed to see the bottom.

Here, swimming and diving is allowed, but very few people were brave enough to enter because the temperature of the water is 10 degrees Celsius.

According to the locals, this place is a real tourist attraction. Here people gather together, throw stones in the middle of the lake and just about a few moments after, the stone appears at the surface of the water again.

So, take a deep breath and look at this unbelievable natural phenomenon.

The Han that will leave you Breathless

Kursumli Han by night

Kursumli Han is a cultural monument located on the left side of the river Vardar, once you cross the Stone Bridge in the old part of the city.

Specifically, it is located under Mustafa Pasha Mosque, a few meters away from the Museum of Macedonia.

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful Han that is saved today, besides the other two (Suli Han and Kapan Han).

The Island of Sirens

Thassos

Everybody says to spend some time on an island is unusual and beautiful experience. But, if you stay in the northern and greenest Greek island – Thasos, then that experience is more intense.

Thassos.

Green Island, or “Island of Sirens” as it was called in the Greek mythology, today is one of the most visited Greek islands. Breathtaking natural beauty, beautiful beaches, hidden hollows, pine forests and lush vegetation that descends to the sea, makes the island to look like a “floating forest”.

The specific and alive relief is characterized through the various banks and high mountain peaks that reach over 1000 meters above the sea. This island is offering to the guests the opportunity to enjoy very relaxed holiday. For those who are looking for intense night parties, there are great places to go.
