As her mandate in Albania comes to an end, the EU Ambassador to our country, Romana Vlahutin, could not contain her emotion as she returned to Vlora's Seafront, which she described as the most beautiful project the EU has supported in our country.

"I am very happy to return to this city that has been completely transformed since last year. I remember Commissioner Hahn was here for the inauguration and praised this as the best project the EU has supported in the region. 

"This made me very proud!" said Romana Vlahutin.

Already the seafront has seen the addition of Artwork by Gentian Tabaku titled "The Doors" or "Gates", a project that waa also supported by the European Union in an effort to transmit all the symbolism of the link between Albania and the European Union.

Further, Ambassador Vlahutin, Prime Minister Edi Rama, elected local leaders, Vlora's citizens and many vacationers joined together in Vlora for a concert featuring both Opera and Ballet called, "Opera in Jeans."

"This is called the 'Gates.' It is not in reference to the gateway of Albania into the EU, but rather the doors of Europe into Albania! 

"Thanks for using this space, keeping it clean and for caring for that which has been given. I wish you joy on the Seafront!" exclaimed Romana Vlahutin.

The Concert comes as a novelty in the Calendar of 500 Entertainment Activities taking place along the coastline.
