Mediterranean heart landmarks a natural balcony, where historically many and many people, coming down from the mountain and National Park of Llogora, used to stop and enjoy a breathtaking panorama right in this place. But nowadays, it has been a belvedere place as much as the main national parachuting jumping spot for the Albanian and International Aeronautics.
This new investment will be dedicated by the Government to the 2017 World Championship of Aeronautics, which will be held for the first time in Albania as the organizing country of the event. The heart through urban/architecture design metaphorizes the love resonance of all Albanians for the best country spot and it has all the premises to be soon an international spot for the international tourists and especially for the parachuting lovers.
The mountain view orientation geographically coincides with the Mediterranean sea panorama and the heart finds its resonance spectrum beyond the nation, becoming naturally the MEDITERRANEAN HEART
