Vlora is an old city founded in the sixth century B.C., originally known by the name Aulona. Vlora is situated in a beautiful location, in the front of the Karaburun peninsula and Sazan
Island and surrounded by Albanian beaches and rocky sand.
The city carries historical importance to Albania as it hosted the First National Assembly, which declared the country’s independence from Ottoman rule on November 28th, 1912. The Museum of Independence is dedicated to this historic event. Other museums of Albanian Vlora include ethnographic and historic ones.
Highly recommended is the Muradije Mosque, the only work remaining in Albanian Vlora from the famous architect Sinan the Great, built-in 1542. On the top of the hill overlooking the city is the religious point of Kuzum Baba. Vlora is the starting point of the Albanian Riviera and is one of the most visited areas of Albanian “Sun and Sea” tourism. The Albanian Riviera is also known as Bregu, is the coastline along the NorthEastern Ionic Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Located in this region are the Orikum and Amantia archaeological parks, and the Llogara National Park.
