The Blue Eye in Saranda, a natural wonder that comes as a surprise, a few days after the incident about a week ago, reopens to visitors. The monument will be accessible to visitors from Thursday, observing the following security measures: a targeted movement of visitors with the assistance of environmental guards and guides.
ADZM Vlora seeks understanding and cooperation of visitors and tourist agencies for observing security measures and consulting environmental guards on the ground for any issues. About a week ago 2 tourists were injured, one Greek and one Israeli, as a result of a rock slide in the Blue Eye.
The “Blue Eye” is widely regarded as a national treasure. It is classified as a startling phenomenon of nature, a place of natural beauty located on the road between the cities of Saranda and Gjirokastra. It is a fountain 45 meters deep with clear water in the middle of a forest of hazelnuts, nuts, cherries, pines and other green trees.
