Butrint Park is an archaeological museum-reserve in the south of Albania near Saranda, near the border with Greece. The national park is located on the shores of the lake of the same name, two kilometers from the Ionian Sea, opposite the island of Kerkyra. The majestic ruins of Albanian, Roman and ancient Greek culture are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Nearby is a modern Albanian village called Butrint.
Saranda is located on the Ionian Sea in Albania. This "tiny" (only 37,000 people) resort town is very attractive for tourists, as the infrastructure is well developed here, and the residents are hospitable and friendly. Saranda is one of the best places for a calm and peaceful holiday. In addition, there are almost 300 sunny days a year here. One of the main attractions of Saranda is its beautiful and spacious promenade with many cafes and shops.
The spring with the romantic name "Blue Eye" is located between the mountains of Saranda and Gjirokastra. It got its name due to the incredible color of the water - dark blue in the center, and bright blue along the edges. It is a source of fresh water surrounded by dense vegetation and evergreen forests. The water temperature in the spring is +13 degrees all year round. It has an approximate depth of more than 50 m. Some divers have descended fifty meters, but it is still unclear what the exact depth of the karst pit is. Due to the depth of the fountain and the features of the karst pit, the water takes on a blue hue under sunlight.
