Butrint National Park, a Mediterranean flavor

Butrint National Park, a Mediterranean flavor

Butrint is a world heritage site protected by UNESCO since 1992 and is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Europe.

Its special atmosphere is created by the combination of archeology with nature that is not found anywhere in the Mediterranean. The center of Butrint is situated on a small hill, surrounded by the waters of Butrint Lake and the Vivari channel that connects the lake with its stretch.

Even in this new tourist season, Butrint continues to be the most visited site in Albania with lots of surprises.

    Nowadays, it is now a major centre for archaeology and conservation training schools organised by the Butrint Foundation in partnership with the Albanian Institutes of Archaeology and Monuments, foreign universities and international specialists and consultants. There is an active program of events in the theatre, concerts and performances, and outreach programmes for local schools and colleges. In 2010, national authorities demolished over 200 illegal structures in Ksamil that violated the town’s master plan and the integrity of Butrint National Park. The remains of the demolished buildings have yet to be removed by authorities.

    I guess Abania suffered a really bad earthquake. I read about it on the news. At least 23 people killed last I checked. That’s really scary… 6.4 magnitude is no joke!
