Things to do, when you feel city life. main Attraction

1 Vlora, Great Man:

This statue seems at first sight to be a remnant of the Enver Hoxha  era. However, at second look, it seems to be older and the clothing of the man tells that it should be linked with the struggles for independence of Albania. The strange thing is that it is unnamed. Who is that ? Anybody knows ?

2 Vlora, An Amazing House:

This small house stands along the avenue between Flag square and Muradi Mosqe. It design itself is amazing and can hardly be labeled of any particular style. What is even more amazing is that it front is entirely made of polished stones of various colors as can be seen on the second photo, an enlargement.

3 Vlora, Ancient House:

This ancient house was built at the end of the XIXth or at the beginning of the XXth in a very different style. It stands on Flag square and looks wealthy, in excellent condition with a golden decor. On the front, it says “SKT Banka Kombetare Tregtare”… A bank! That explains why it is in such a good condition! I hope a bank will settle in the hose on the previous tip to mend it

4 Theatre Petro Marko:

Theatre Petro Marko is a gracious red and white builòding which looks totally out of place in the city's context - and yet not only it exists, but it also has a fine reputation at home as well as abroad. The name is in honour of a great local playwriter.

Its theatre company is often invited at prestigious theatre festivals in Italy - it does not only perform modern and classic plays internationally known, but also works from Albanian authors such as Agolli, Kadare, Hysi.

5 Himara and Dhermi:

District of Vlorë, Himarë and Dhermi are not far from the city, it would make a nice day trip or else a nice stop if travelling up the coast. There are beautiful white sand beaches, and majestic mountains which slope down towards the sea. Himarë is bilingual, with some of the residents speaking an archaic dialect of Greek.

Restuarants in Himara

Food in Himara, would be a lovely mixed cuisine of traditional Albanian, Greek and Italian food, which would be the best mixed of Mediterranean food. Local dishes that are very tasteful besides the seafood. The octopus in the oven and the sardines marinated in salt is great.

Local Popular meat dishes are stewed meat and onion `chumlek`, veal stew `ferges`, lamb meat and yogurt, sheep pluck stuffed with meat and vegetables.

Byrek is made and eaten throughout Albania. Byrek me Kos is a yogurt and white cheese pie and is just one of the many variations you can find throughout the Balkans.

Traditional Greek & Albanian cuisine is all about fresh ingredients. Seasonal produce, just-caught seafood, regional cooking styles and minimal dressings bring out the flavours of the Mediterranean, also everything is made tastier by this year’s olive oil and a crusty loaf of fresh bread.

 

Bars and clubs in Himara and Dhermi

Most of the Albanian joinain coastline is know more for Family holidays, but there are a few good spots to party till late, which is very popular for the Albanians.

The cocktails bars and beach parties happens just on the face of the beach with foam parties and late night clubs. where you can see the clear sky and read the stars while you are enjoying your drink.

There are two or three good cocktail bars and clubs. One of the main cocktail bar and the most popular Beach Club in Himara Coastal is (Batida de Coco) all day all night music. Starts in the morning with good music and daiquiri water melon or the special cocktail of the day continue the night with loud music The best cocktails, the best music, with the best staff.

Dhermi:

There are two main places go out at night in Dhermi, one is Havana Beach Bar one of the first beach bars since 2001, loving atmosphere, wonderful surroundings and great service. And recently Palase, and Cafe del Mare Pub, the best choices on the Ionian Coast, well known amongst Albanians. In fact, Havana Beach Bar is so popular that in summer, most of the Albanian young members of the government, singers, models, and Big Brother stars go there.

Dhermi is full of nice modern cafes and bars, a coffee costs around But be careful when family shopping because buying in the centre of Dhermi is far more expensive than buying in the village, where old women sell what they grow on their balconies - usually called "veranda" in Albanian.
