Over the centuries, Albania and the Balkans have played a major role in the development of civilizations, cultures and traditions. The region has played host to a succession of peoples: Prehistorians, Greeks, Romans, Barbarians, Byzantines, Crusaders, Ottomans… At the crossroads between East and West, Albania is bursting with wonders just waiting to be discovered.
As well as a long and important history, the country has some incredible natural attractions: alongside mountains with peaks topping 8,200 ft., 280 miles of coastline reveal a clear sea, sandy beaches, pine forests, lagoons, steep cliffs and small coves. The “Albanian Riviera” is also popular for its beach clubs, discos and delicious restaurants.
There’s no shortage of things to do in this amazing country: mountain biking, scuba diving, canyoning, rafting, horse riding, climbing, winter sports, trekking…
Tirana, the historic capital, is a safe and pleasant city. It’s home to several museums, an opera house, interesting promenades, galleries and parks. With countless restaurants, cafés and clubs, the city also has an exciting nightlife.
All these attractions make Albania a fascinating and easily accessible tourist destination!
