The abandoned Sazan island will turn into an important tourism destination in our country. The National Coast Agency has started work on pursuing an ambitious project to return the island to an important area of regional tourism. Its director Auron Tare visited the island yesterday and “inaugurated” the launch of the works with the rise of the red flag. A French agency called “Conservatuar de Littoral” will work closely with specialists at the National Agency of the Coast. The latter are staying on the island of Sazani to implement the action plan of the start of the project “Sazani”, a project aimed at turning Sazani Island into a first class tourist attraction, respecting the ecosystem correctly and the history of the island. In addition to the tourist aspect, the project seeks to create a Scientific Research Center on the island, which will conduct studies on marine ecosystems, naval archeology, alternative energy, turning this center into a focus of collaboration with international universities. Sazani is an island with a perfect geography to develop maritime tourism, adventure, history and fishing. A section of underwater relics such as amphora and other objects found near the island have been recovered by Albanian archeologists and are exhibited at the Historical and Archaeological Museum in Durres. The island has an ancient history dating from the VI century p.e.s. named Sason. During the Middle Ages, the island switched to Venice. In the new times along with the Ionian islands of Greece was occupied by England. From the time of Julius Caesar until the Second World War, a number of naval battles have developed on the coast around the Vlora Bay, with the result that some of the ships were drowned.
