Albania is Europe’s last unturned stone and one of the most rapidly evolving destinations on the continent. Rich in history, culture, and rugged natural beauty, Albania has been under a myriad of influences throughout its history but has preserved its traditions and distinct identity admirably. This small country boasts a very rich history, with influences stemming from many different communities, including Macedonian Greeks and Illyrians, Romans, and Byzantines.
The country is full of surprises; for example, ancient sites like Butrint National Park remain virtually unchanged since they were constructed thousands of years ago. The Llogara Pass, one of the highest paved roads in Europe, offers stunning bird’s-eye views of the white powdery beaches of the Ionian coast.
that Albania has 13 small islands and only two of them are more than 1 square kilometre?
With more than 300 sunny days a year, the Albanian Riviera is a strong competitor among year-round tourist destinations in Europe, offering a network of hidden beaches tucked into scenic hills. Rustic mountain villages and narrow high passes lead into the Albanian Alps, also known as “Albania’s Switzerland.”
