One of Albania’s most popular cities, we finally made it to Saranda! I can definitely see the draw to the beauty that is Saranda and why everyone raves about it so much. And frankly, I have no words. I will let the pictures do the talking.
After spending days in Tirana and the surrounding area my cousins and I decided it was time to head south. I have actually never gone lower than Tirana before while visiting Albania so this trip was one I was very excited for. The road trip itself was a beauty. I was not aware just how stunning the landscape in Albania actually is.
The Blue Eye is located en route to Saranda, near the town of Gjirokaster. (Gjirokaster, I will regretfully say, was a city I wanted to explore but because of shortage of time was incapable of doing so). Legend says that if you bathe in the freezing waters of the blue eye you will be cured of all illness.
