The project of Albania Bay Marina provides the construction of the first modern marina and real estate investments in Albanian coast. The project is placed in the city of Durres, the second city after Tirana, the capital of Albania. Durres is the biggest commercial port of south-west Balkans.
The city of Durres was founded since 627 BC antiquity by the Corinthians and Corcyrians (ancient Greeks), named as Epidamnus. In 229 BC, when the Romans conquered the city, became Dyrrhachium, name which was found on coins of the fifth century BC.
Dyrrachium (Durres) was the landing place for Roman passengers crossing the Ionian Sea from Brundisium (Brindisi), which made it a fairly busy way station. Here commenced the Via Egnatia, the Roman military road to Thessalonica that connected Roman Illyria with Macedonia and Thrace. The city itself was part of Macedonia, more specifically Epirus Nova.
Durres has the biggest the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Balkans including the Roman walls and the mosaics which make Durres a potential tourist attraction for the visitors.
The city of Durres is just 32 km from Tirana the capital of Albania, 24 km from the international airport of Tirana and close to the ferry terminals of Durres the Albania Bay Marina can meet the market demands for marinas with high standards.
