    Visit of the “Blue Eye” National Park
    The National Park of “Blue Eye” is such an attractive touristic place, and it's located near the Muzinë village, by the national route Delvinë –Gjirokastër.

    It’s a very picturesque area where crystal – clear water gushes out from within the mountain Mali i Gjërë. This actual spring is the largest and a most interesting source, among the other 18 springs that flow from Mali i Gjërë. It has been declared a natural monument. It holds an oval shape similar to the shape of an eye, emerging from the dark underground in the middle and deep blue at the sides. The spring has great depth, which goes up to 50m, and is surrounded by dense and lush vegetation. All in all, the area offers a great time out for adults, as well as for children.

    Visit the City of Gjirokastra

    Visit the City of Gjirokastra
    Gjirokastra, is also known as the stone city, and has been protected by UNESCO since 2005. It is one of the last Ottomans -style cities left in the Balkans.

    Gjirokastra was an important administrative center of the 19th century, populated by landowners who built majestic fortified tower houses. The city has over 500 historic buildings. The peculiarities of the time of life in Albania also left traces in their architecture: protective structures were needed, because Albanians occasionally fought against each other; furthermore they rebelled against the High Gate in Istanbul. Today's city of Gjirokastra includes the Old Town, the castle (the first settlement nucleus) and the Ottoman-style quarters - built on crests, coming from the castle to the valley basin, where there are contemporary buildings and university complex. The traditional neighborhoods lie in the form of rays around the castle with the names Cfakë, Dunavat, Manalat, Palorto, Varosh, Meçite, Hazmurat, Old bazaar. Because of its proximity to the classical and Hellenistic centers: Jerma (Antigonea) and the Roman city of Adrianopolis near the village of Sofratica, it is often thought that the earliest settlement in Gjirokastra is the medieval fortress. But on this thesis, doubts have arisen as the discoveries inside the castle have revealed pottery in four different stages of residence before the Ottoman period: in the V - II centuries BC, the V - VII centuries, the IX - X centuries and the XII - XIII centuries. The earliest from these phases brought traces of a considerable wall made of blocks, suggesting that there was an important fortification of the Roman era on this side of the Drino River valley (before 168 BC).
