Come in every season to Fier

Come in every season to Fier

The rays of the November sun, falling over the sea of ??Seman, look like a cross, which blesses the end of the tourist season, on this coast. In the waves of the Adriatic Sea, part of Darëzeza, which sway under the gust of wind, the shadow of the light takes the form of an icon of Health, The candle of the sun is slowly extinguished and the embers of its flame appear both inside me and in the shining moon that has begun to appear on the horizon. It seems as if you live in an invisible mystery. Vacationers have long been swept from the coast as if in an autumn retouch, while traces of the finished season are visible everywhere. About 850 thousand vacationers were registered this season on the sea shores that are administered by the Municipality of Fier. "The Municipality of Fier has continued from the beginning of the year until the end of the season with its public services and works in the areas that have an impact on tourism, says the Deputy Mayor of the Municipality Enkelejda Peshkepia. "We managed to manage a good season, starting first with the maintenance and behavior in favor of the vacationing citizens of the infrastructure" she adds, mentioning the cleaning of all the roads leading to the coast of Seman and Darëzeza from vegetation, the expansion of the lateral system of these roads and the paving with bituminous sand, the cleaning of the entire coastline where the public and non-public beaches were located, from the garbage and the cleaning of all the bins, etc. In fact, for several years this region has managed to avoid being labeled as a tourist season only for the hot season. If during the summer season, 66 subjects, labeled as beach stations on the coast, exercised their activity, which ended their term in the month of September, another branch of tourism is the archaeological, geographical and culinary one. Ardiana Mile, Director of the Directorate of Art and Tourism in the Municipality of Fier, says that the perspective on tourism is now broad and diverse. "If the whole season was a beautiful artistic and cultural competition, from the opening of the tourist season as a grand celebration including water sports and horse riding, to the many activities in the fine arts gallery, the Feast of Wheat, which will turn into a national holiday, we have managed to create special connections with tourists even beyond the summer season", she affirms. But what can a tourist bring to Fier Municipality in November-December? Is the tourist offered a rich and enticing guide to visit this city and its surroundings? "In fact, Autumn is the most fantastic time to enjoy the virgin and wild nature of the coast of Fier, the coast which does not end with the sand and the sea. Lagoons, wetlands, forests, dozens of natural paths through the lagoon and forest area, offer excellent opportunities to explore and enjoy a true natural oasis, with rich coastal flora and fauna. The landscapes for every visitor are fantastic", Mrs. Mile tells us. A nature that resembles a beautiful natural jungle. Mile adds that there is increasing interest from local and foreign visitors to explore these trails by foot, that were created not only in the area of ??pine forests on the coast. But also as an adventure through the paths, to touch the heritage, or even places of faith, Gurëzeze, Maja e Peshtan, the ancient temple of Shtyllas, Ongarev area, etc. The escapades of such trips mostly come on weekends. Groups of visitors are introduced to the nature, landscapes, legends and stories of the locals, with numerous riches of cultural heritage, with the greenness and yellowness that Autumn offers. "We also have a special tourism - adds Mile. It is church tourism. The Church of Saint George of Libofsha, from 1776, is also a cultural heritage. Thanks to the architectural beauty and the frescoes of the painters Zografë, it became one of the most favorite churches of the Albanian Film Studio, where the comedy "14 years old bridegroom" was also played, she smiles. If you go to visit the Fier Historical Museum, you will always find visitors mainly students, but also citizens of different ages. Foreigners, mainly Italian, German and French, show special interest mainly in the pavilion of antiquity and the artifacts exhibited in it, the history of Apollonia of Illyria and the relations that some of the personalities of republican and imperial Rome had with the ancient city, such as Julius Caesar, Cicero, Octavian Augustus, Agrippa, etc. This museum has a great wealth of knowledge about history, culture or material heritage that it preserves and transmits", says Ilirjan Gjika, head of the Fier Historical Museum. If you have visited Apollonia these November autumn days, you could hardly believe that we are in the season of falling leaves. Dense greenery, flowers, even daffodils, have given Apollonia the charm of a real spring. Yellow flowers, gray monuments, sun-kissed trees at the end of November, This is one of the instant photos that the city of the Apollonian sun offers, an important part of the Greek and national tourism. Pilar Panes Casas and Carmen Campelo, from Madrid, Spain, two of the 43293 tourists who have visited Apollonia during this 9 month of 2022, enjoyed this ancient city and the treasures it carries, as part of the Mediterranean and European heritage. "I really like Apollonia, and we know that Apollonia and Albania give you pleasure, they have the same culture and influence as they had in antiquity, with the Greek and Roman civilizations," says Pilari. The point is recognized through photos and videos posted on Youtube by the specialists of the Archaeological Park. But also from the worldwide visitors of Apollonia. "We are the same and I don't see any differences between our cultures - affirms the tourist as she listens. "Normally, all this influence has made it different and cultural diversity is important in this territory, for us it is as if we visit the same places because since we are Mediterranean it is the same extent here." As they look at parts of about 1,200 objects discovered in Apollo and exhibited in this museum, it seems as if they have brought together the warm landscapes of Spain, the beauties of Madrid, and the Spanish style of behavior, in front of the magic of the beauty of a country other like Albania. "We discovered Apollonia through photos, videos we have seen and we really liked it When we came here we saw a site which was It is like a connection of our cultures We saw that we have the same similarities and we didn't feel like strangers here, Our coming to Apolloni was a magic", says Carmen. The director of the archaeological park, Apoloni Ornela Dyrmishaj, and tourists continue to visit the stands Since May 4, the new tourist season has opened in this park, and visits are still ongoing. "This year, compared to 2021, we are doing very well. We have exceeded the numbers and so have the revenues. 43,293 visitors have been recorded for the nine-month period. And again there is an influx of visitors from various European countries. The income is 18,223,660. if we make a comparison in 2021, 30,575 visitors were registered in Apolloni with an income of 13,708,220 ALL. This season the waiting times, from the archaeological park were until 6 pm, we gave and we give time to visitors and tourists to have different time schedules", she says. "The National Archaeological Park of Apollonia is one of the most beautiful and most visited - says Ornela" It has an extension of about 700 ha, within three administrative units, an ancient city with about 100 ha It is one of the largest territories of the Illyrian civilization , after Durrës, the largest distributor of ancient culture and not only.. Contains antiquity, the Middle Ages, part of the world wars and the communist one. It is centered on the ancient city and its museum part, which is located inside a medieval monastery," she says with satisfaction. Named after the sun god, the city founded in `588 BC, in this tourist season, It looks like he gave a magic mass for thousands of tourists who continue to visit Apollonia every day. During the 2019 tourist season, Apollonia was visited by 60,250 local and foreign tourists with an income of 13,039,220 ALL. It is the beginning of December. But the preparations for the new tourist season started in mid-autumn. Unlike other years, when applications for beach stations were made in March, this year they started on November 1. "The applications started on November 1. We have carried out on-site verifications for the map of the stations, verifications of the distance between them. We believe that with the preparatory work we have started, we will have a more prosperous 2023 season in our region - affirms the deputy mayor of the Municipality Enkelejda Peshkepia. But what were the problems at the beach stations and did they overcome them throughout the season? Through the licensed stations, a joint inspection was carried out with the groups of the Inter-institutional Task Force set up by the Prefect of the Fier District. The inspection was carried out based on the approved annual plan of the Fier Regional State Health Inspectorate for the summer tourist season. The problem found in these entities is the lack of running water supply, due to the lack of a water supply line. Also, another problem of the subjects of the extension on the first coastal line is the method of discharging the used waters. Because these entities are provisional entities and are located in protected areas, the possibility of investing in objects remains limited. Wastewater discharges are mainly carried out in septic tanks. In general, the hygiene and sanitary conditions of these subjects are good. "I believe that we managed to solve all the routine problems with private entities and those that are the competence of the local government," adds the deputy mayor. Thanks to the joint work of all the directorates, we managed to create a new physiognomy for the coastal season on the ground, we started with the cleaning of the sand, right before the start of the season and then, we carried out the disinfection process of the entire coast of Seman, Darëzeza and Pishporo. The wetland on Seman beach was dried and the operation of the beach stations on this coastline started normally - she asserts. Adriana Mile, Director of Tourism in this municipality, says that the number of day vacationers, even though the competition from the beaches of other municipalities, mainly in the south, was great, recognized an increase. "More than 350 day vacationers were registered at the 66 beach stations on our coast. While there were no lack of cultural and entertainment activities", she affirms. In the center of attention for the new season, which has already started this winter, will be the normal and real operation of the beach guards. This concern was also raised by the blue uniforms of the border police. They have been present along the entire Pishporo-Seman coastline. The 2022 summer tourist season for the police forces in DVP Fier from the services of the order police, traffic police and border police was another challenge that was passed successfully.. Organizational measures were taken to implement the tasks drawn up in the Action Plan Summer Tourist Season No. 247 dated 27.04.2022 to cope with the flow of vehicles and vacationers, both foreign and domestic. For weekends, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, services were organized with an increased presence of general patrols for order, for Darëzeze and Seman beaches. The road axes leading to these beaches were patrolled and monitored by the traffic police patrol services with vehicles logged to increase security measures and manage vehicle flows. For the local police, troubling issues, flags and dividing buoys for distances allowed for swimming by vacationers. This is very important on the coastline as well as for establishing the dividing line of responsibility for private and public entities, to avoid cases of endangering the lives of vacationers", the blue uniforms emphasize...
