The large city of Vlore was the center of Albanian Jewish life in modern times, although little remains of it today. Near the  Historical Museum of the city is the  Street of the Jews. A plaque on one of the buildings pays homage to the Jewish inhabitants of Vlore. An adjoining plaque indicates that the Rue des Juifs is “protected by the state”.

Then head to the  Muradie Mosque. Adjacent to the building, you will notice a beautiful three-storey building. This building, built in 1928, was successively one of the city’s three synagogues, a library, and then a private school. It is still owned by the Jewish community.
