Welcome to Albania!
Albania is a small, mountainous country in the Mediterranean that is bordered by Montenegro, Kosova, Macedonia, and Greece. It is actually called Shqipëria, which means “land of the eagles” by its people, instead of Albania as most people know it.
It has a very long and interesting history, beautiful landscapes, and is rich in culture. We highly recommend you put this little country firmly on your list of “places to visit” and then visit it sooner than later before everyone else discovers it!
For four decades Albania was under the rule of Communist leader Enver Hoxha and was characterised by isolation, poverty, and above all, paranoia. Thankfully since the early 1990s that has changed and Albania is now building itself back up and has opened its doors to visitors from all over the world.
