Zervat (Greek: Ζερβάτι; romanized: Zerváti) is a village in Gjirokastër County, southern Albania.[1] At the 2015 local government reform it became part of the municipality of Dropull.[2] It is inhabited solely by Greeks.[3]

Demographics[edit]

The village had 603 inhabitants in 1993, all ethnically Greeks.[3] The village today has a permanent population of roughly 200-250 inhabitants, notably due to migration to Greece or other countries. Despite this, the population doubles in Easter, Summer and Christmas, as most people return to their village to celebrate or have holidays with their families.
