BRIEF HISTORY OF PERMET MUNICIPALITY

The town of Përmet is located close to Vjosa River and near Dhëmbel Mountain, which is 240m above the sea level, with a surface area of 120 ha, out of which 99,000 m2 are green areas, making it one of the most particular and picturesque towns of South Albania. It has northern geographic latitude of 40 degrees 03´ and 40 degrees 30´ in the south and geographic longitude of 20 degrees 05´in the east and 20 degrees 36´ in west. It has a typical Mediterranean climate, with approximately 1,400 mm of rain annually. Permet is located 30 km from the border with Greece (an EU country) with which it is linked through the border crossing point of Tre Ura, 70 km from Gjirokastra prefecture, and 230 km from Tirana, the capital. The town of Permet is the administrative centre of Permet district, with the latter composed of nine administrative units including the municipalities of Përmet and Këlcyrë, as well as seven communes (Çarshovë, Petran, Piskovë, Frashër, Dëshnicë, Sukë and Ballaban). Përmet district is confined on the north with the districts of Skrapar and Korça, east with Kolonja district, west with Tepelena, south with Gjirokastra and southeast with Greece. Vjosa River runs 58 km within the district, it is the second river for hydro-resources and creates a wonderful valley beginning in Çarshovë commune and ending in Tepelena. The main mountains include Nemërçka (2,485m), Dhëmbel (2,080m), and Trebeshina (1,922m). The town of Përmet dates back to the XV century as an administrative unit and there are many interesting legends on its name. The valley was the settlement of the Paraways tribe and the name of the city is linked with the name of King Premti; whereas the name of Vjosa with the name Aos. There is an Illyrian castle (Bolëngë) located in the southeastern part of the town, whereas the "Rock" of the city (monument of culture) was a watching point to check over the caravans during XVIII-XIX century. The thermal waters of Bënjë, well-known for their healing values, as well as the rocky canyons of Lengarica, with the doves' cavern, can be found in the eastern part. Foreign travellers, including Pukevili and Edith Durham highly appreciated the hospitality, generosity and clean environment in the city. In her book entitled "The Burden of the Balkans", Durham writes "Përmet with the high cypresses and spring green blossom seemed to me one of the most beautiful countries of the world". During the years of fascist occupation, Permet was burnt down four times. The town was inundated twice in 1933 and 1964. The city of Permet has a perfect harmony of the old part (with stone houses and cobblestoned streets) with the new part and asphalted roads.

f- Environment The city of Permet is known as a place with clean and green areas, and has a reputation of being the city of flowers. Given that Vjosa River runs through the city, there have often been problems as the riverbed has been exploited for inert materials with no criteria and, thus, further, problems have been caused to the river fauna because of the irregular fishing. The strong measures undertaken by the municipal police in cooperation with the public order police, as well as the increase of green areas as a result of local projects and initiatives have led to positive results in this respect. It is a challenge for the city-hall to improve the eco-system of Vjosa river and transform the entire city into a clean and green environment. Data on green areas:
