Though small in size, this unique country has plenty of character.
Situated on Southeastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, Albania is a mix of sweeping coastlines, mountainous terrains and archaeological sites, attracting history enthusiasts, active travellers and food lovers alike.
Since the fall of communism in the early 1990s, Albania has come a long way and grown tremendously.
Rich in cultural heritage and natural beauty, this biodiverse gem offers mainly hot, dry summers and mild winters. It shares the same rugged coastline as Croatia and borders Greece, making it the perfect destination for sun-seeking travellers.
For those looking for a vibrant atmosphere, the country’s capital, Tirana, offers bustling squares, cafes and restaurants. Quieter folk should head to Albania’s countryside, where they’ll find beautiful, timeless villages, plenty of charm and a reassuring sense of rustic homeliness.
