Serbians Monuments

Serbs called Corfu the “island of salvation”, after the biggest exit in their history with roughly 250.000 people who had died on the long way through the Balkans to the Adriatic sea. housands of them were transported with the help of French and Italian ships from the Albanian port of Avlonas (Valona) to Corfu. At the place where the Serbs disembarked, 8 Km to the north of the town at the gulf of Gouvia, a memorial plate reminds us of that event.
On that plate we can read in french, greek and serbian :
“ At this port of the island of Corfu, the Serbian allied army had disembarked from 6 Jan. 1916 to 5 Apr. 1916, which passed through Albania.
