  • The excursion to Zvernec is absolutely recommended to anyone who visit Vlora. Take the coast road (carefully, is full of holes) and in 20 minutes you will be faced with a real spectacle: the lagoon and the small island connected by a wooden bridge to the Mainland. The original bridge collapsed but there was prepared a new one, still no banisters but passable. Across the lagoon so we arrive at the beautiful monastery and the Church of Santa Maria of the 13th century, immersed in the pine forest. The Church can be visited without any ticket and has a beautiful wooden iconostasis with copies of original icons.

  • The road leading to the island passes through a pine forest a little seedy, after some ups and downs you reach the lagoon where lies the island with the monastery. Unfortunately there are restoration of the bridge and you can just cross it to about fifty meters. The atmosphere is very nice though. Watch the way back if you walk into a ghost town with streets from Camel Trophy which is really hard to get back to civilization.

  • We wanted to visit this monastery but unfortunately we couldn't. The bridge is destroyed and other ways aren't exist.  more »
