Zana Papagjika says getting to her café in the Albanian coastal village of Nivica is now easier for local costumers, due to the recent paving of the road that runs by it.
And she’s positive that during the summer months ahead, the revamped path will entice international clients as well.
“No doubt it will improve the business and tourism as well, because everything that is nice begets nice things. And people have always liked this area, and now that the road is better, they will like it more,” Papagjika says.
Providing better access to villages along Albania’s seacoast is part of the country’s Coastal Village Conservation and Development Program.
The program promotes tourism on the South Albania Coast in several ways, including newly paved routes and paths.
