Albania could perhaps be Europe's last secret. With its snow-capped mountains, weathered castles, rugged forests, historical villages, and haunting Alps, Albania's a world of natural and cultural beauty just waiting to be explored.
Located along the Mediterranean coast between Greece and Montenegro, Albania spent decades in isolation, saturated in political strain. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, however, the country began welcoming visitors from across the globe. In recent years, the villages of Albania have slowly begun to revitalize with renovated hotels, restaurants, bars, cafes, and monuments. Locals welcome visitors with open arms and offers of coffee, liquor, or a meal. Albanian cuisine is simple and Mediterranean-inspired, with fresh seafood, homemade bread, and colorful salads.
