The Monastery of Zvernec – Vlora

  • Zvernec, Narta Vlore

Zvërnec Island is an island within the Narta Lagoon in southern Albania.

The island is nearly all covered with tall pine trees and is just east of a much smaller island. It is 430m in length and has a maximum width of 300m. Zvërnec Island is connected to the mainland by a 270m long wooden bridge.

The island is a tourist attraction because it contains the well preserved 13th-14th century Byzantine Zvërnec Monastery. Near the island lies the village that bears the same name. The island has an area about 9 hectares.

    Do not miss the festivities on 15th of August, every year if you are around Vlora. Great celebration are taking place on the island related to the orthodox celebration of the dormition of saint Mary.
