Monuments - Albania
Llogara National Park is located in the southwestern region of Albania. It is centered on the Ceraunian Mountains along the Albanian Riviera and neighbors with Butrint National Park. Its majority is blanketed with rich forests comprised of trees, such as ash, black pine, silver fir, kermes oak and Bulgarian fir. There is also a wide variety of bird species (e.g. the golden eagle and the griffon vulture) and wild animals (e.g. the roe deer, the European wildcat and the wolf). Llogara National Park was created to protect the majestic nature of the region, its biodiversity and its different ecosystems. It is identified as an Important Bird Area and as an Important Plant Area in support of this diversity. Many of the species are endemic to the area. Furthermore, the park is a famous hiking destination in the country. Hiking is one of the best ways to explore these mountainous forests and their beauty.
