Fier - Key information

Fier, nestled on the banks of the Gjanica River amidst Myzeqe Plain’s rich agricultural landscape, serves as a gateway to the past and a vibrant community brimming with present-day enthusiasm. The town, established by the influential Vrioni family in the 19th century, lies in proximity to the ancient city of Apollonia, a testament to Albania’s deep historical roots dating back to 588 BCE. Fier’s heritage is uniquely tied to the natural resources of the region, with its historical significance linked to oil, gas, and bitumen deposits that have been known since Roman times.

Today, Fier is an important hub in southwestern Albania, providing a mix of cultural experiences and economic opportunities. Its market, initially built to house 122 merchants by the river, continues to be a centre for trade and craftsmanship. With its Mediterranean climate and convenient transport links, Fier is perfect for those seeking a blend of Albania’s rich past with the dynamic growth of its future.
