Butrint National Park Support Program

Butrint National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site which encompasses an archaeological site of great historical value and a wildlife preserve which is the richest site of biodiversity in all of Albania. Tourist traffic has been increasing in recent years and the Park has searched for a way to handle this more effectively. The AADF implemented a project which focused on the improvement of tourist accessibility and included: replacement of the security cameras at the Butrint Museum, improvements in landscaping, installation of a modern ticketing system to facilitate better revenue tracking and financial reporting, and new multilingual signs throughout the premises.
