Thermal hot spring in Llixhat e Bënjës
#tripaway Nivica Canyons are a natural wonder, discovered and explored only in recent years by many visitors. They are located near the village of Nivica. The canyons of Nivice have a length of up to several (km), an average width of about 15 m, and a depth of up to several tens (m). They are formed by the erosion of the Nivice Stream, part of the Bencha Stream, into carbonate rocks. The stream of Nivica, below the village of the same name, has formed a gorge with a very narrow bed, with a length of about 3 km to the basin of Merje, a place where it joins the Well of Progonat. Its bottom is very regular, with fractures or thresholds and jerks, accompanied by negative shapes, which are pits and grooves deep in the rocky bottom of the canyon, with oval-shaped cauldron-shaped appearance, with clear and clear water. The water separates and falls from great heights (30-40 m) and forms waterfalls, like that of Guva and two others below it. The canyon, though ever deeper, is presented with full of natural contrasts, cliffs, stepped bed and numerous caves on the rock face. They are visited by taking the road Tepelene-Progonat-Nivice.#visitalbania #tripaway
Albania faces the Mediterranean Sea, backed by the Balkans, the most eastern extension of the famous Alps, right here. Diverse landscapes bring amazing natural scenery, and because there are fewer human activities in other parts of Europe, almost all of them are completely preserved. For the first time, I was impressed by the scenery of Albania, which is a hot spring next to the town of Permet in the south. The whole hot spring pool is open to people between waterfalls, streams and snowy mountains in the distance. Compared with a lot of hot springs filled with tourists, not only do you not charge tickets, but even a few tourists! Occasionally, a few European self-drivers will come here to relax, but more time, you are the only creature in this infinity pool. Albania's eating is the most cost-effective experience in this country! Night to Tirana's famous Era Italian restaurant to have a full meal. Comfortable environment, warm service, and authentic taste. 60 per capita.
When I look down on the city, what attracts my attention most is the street of this white building. The Ottoman-style buildings are neatly arranged. When I walk into this street, it is another feeling. This lively alley, two old and half-old people chatting in front of the cafe, even the huge bus is crowded in, and the street is integrated.
Ginocaster, a town 50 km from Sarande, is the world heritage site known for its Ottoman architecture, like Berat. Nestled between the mountains, this cosy town has hundreds of 17th-century houses and is a mix of Albanian and Ottoman styles. There are still many people living here. The foot of the mountain to the top of the castle is about 1 kilometer away. It may take you half an hour to walk leisurely. Ginocaster Castle was once the center of the city and has now become a ruin and a museum of weapons preserved during World War II. Walking into the castle, I saw a lot of large field guns and tanks left behind in Germany and Italy, as well as an American jet. Arrive at the castle terrace, the wide angle of view allows you to see the city clearly, where is the dividing line between the old city and the old city, where is the sharp-edged church, where is a special item Street, even people walking on the road, moving cars, you can see clearly. A huge stage of national folk art is presented in front of it, as if it is an iron frame rainbow across the valley. Standing on the terrace, a lovely Ottoman-style building is located in this valley. If you look closely, you might find a door like a human face.
