Fier - Into Albania


Of Nature and Antiquity

Why you should visit Fier

Albania’s underrated gem of a city, Fier is rich in both historic sites and natural beauty! Fier’s main attraction is undoubtedly the ruins of the ancient Illyrian city of Apollonia, which houses a beautiful Odeon and the enchanted House of Mosaics, among other memorable monuments. Another reminder of a bygone world is the Archaeological Park of Bylis, the largest Illyrian city in the south of Albania. In addition to these magnificent traces of the past, the area surrounding Fier is a place of considerable natural beauty. The Karavasta Lagoon, one of the country’s most well-conserved wetlands, is located only a 30-min drive away from Fier, on the Adriatic Sea. The lagoon, rich in different species of flora and fauna, is a bird-watcher’s paradise as well as a food-lover’s dream!
