Albania has so much natural beauty with its rugged unspoilt coastline and majestic snow-topped mountains. It has some interesting archaeological sites and many castles. Remaining undiscovered for tourism until the end of last century, this country still has places to visit where you will not be overrun with tourists.
On South Eastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, it is a small country with Adriatic and Ionian coastlines and an interior crossed by the Albanian Alps. The country has many castles and archaeological sites. Its capital Tirana centres on the sprawling Skanderbeg Square, site of the National History Museum, with exhibits spanning antiquity to post-communism, and frescoed Et’hem Bey Mosque.
The nature in Albania includes mountain ranges, rivers, lakes and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, some of which you can only get to by walking as they are inaccessible by car. There are also several UNESCO world heritage old towns.
With very affordable prices, this is a great country to include in your travel destinations. Great for a walking, hiking or cycling tour, it is also easy to cross the country on a land tour and has a wide variety of things to see and do.
Albania’s wine is characterised by its unique sweetness and indigenous varieties. The geographical landscape and climate are perfect for wine production. With an ancient history of wine-making going back thousands of years, interrupted during its more recent communist years, Albania is still in the process of re-establishing an international reputation as a quality wine producer.
Natural hot springs, crystal clear waters, lakes, mountains, waterfalls, rivers and unspoiled nature, plus and excellent cuisine and a 6000-year old viticulture, you can be sure of a memorable visit.
