Why you should visit Albania?

Albania is the last unexplored area of the European touristic map, so the interest to visit this small and beautiful country is growing more and more.
Albania has become a favorite destination for travelers. Having been almost entirely closed off under the hard-line communist regime for many decades, the country is still considered an exotic tourist destination. The natural scenery and beauty of the mountainous countryside is therefore largely unspoilt. Visitors can discover crystal-clear mountain lakes and gorgeous beaches.

Albania is looking ahead to a brighter future. There is no better time to visit than now.

Is Albania Europe’s next big beach holiday destination!?

It could be argued that, when it comes to travel, there are few mysteries left in western Europe. A continent so trawled, trusted and trammelled by tourist footfall has long since given up its last hidden corners. Especially those corners which abut the seafront.
But if you take another glance at the map, one remaining pocket of the relatively unknown may just stare back at you. Albania is like a missing piece in an otherwise completed jigsaw – the final portion of the landmass along the Adriatic which has not become a beach-holiday stalwart.

Arriving in Albania by Sea

To cross in albania by sea you can use some of the harbours (ports) like: Durres, Vlora, Shengjin, Saranda. There are many ferry services to Albania mainly from Italy and Greece, like for ex From Korfu (Greece) to Saranda, in the south of the country, from Ancona, Bari, Brindisi and Trieste (Italy) to Durres and Vlora. From Bari you can use the ferry where you can also bring the car, a trip which longs around 9 hours. And also the Cataraman or the quick one that brings you in albania in around 3 hours 30 min.

Entry Points: Road links to the Kosovo region are sometimes dangerous to use, owing to political tensions in the region. So before using them get the lattest info on security issues at the nearest Albanian embassy.

Tirana is the capital city and main urban area of Albania, with a population of 454,000 inhabitants. For Albania as a Nation, Tirana represents the center of culture and business. The scale and grandour of the Et’hem Bey Mosque indicates that the majority of the population are Muslim, but in addition, historic communities of Orthodox and Catholic Christians co-exist – from where Mother Teresa originated.
Tirana has been transformed, with high-quality blocks of flats, good small hotels, excellent bars, patisseries and restaurants. There are even bookshops which sell the Guardian. There are many pavement bars and restaurants where it is perfectly safe to sit out at night. Tirana is notable for its open design, with the center dominated by the enormous Skanderbeg Square. A statue of the one-time dictator, Enver Hoxha, now stands guard.
