In the heart of the Mediterranean, on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Albania is fast becoming one of the world's most interesting getaways. Still relatively unspoiled by globalization, tourists will notice an inspiring mixture of civilizations and cultures - making this European country truly unique.
It is a rare city in the world that can have a position that is as conveniently and geostrategically located as Vlore; which is connected with its immediate entrances to the sea and to the west and at the base of a string of mountains in the east. The western vanguard of the city is the island of Sazan and the peninsula of Karaburun with which Vlore keeps “the key” to the strait of Otranto. Vlore is an ancient city and the southernmost port of the Adriatic. Over 124,000 people live in Vlore. The bay of Vlore is shallow where the depth goes to five meters after one meter from the coast line and ten meters past two kilometers from the coast line.
