    I’ll admit that I didn’t know much about Albania beyond its political history. I didn’t realize that it had morphed beyond it’s traditional Muslim roots either. I had to laugh at the local surprise about visiting, but with challenging connections, it doesn’t seem surprising either. Your photos are beautiful, particularly the photos of the coastlines and the church. It seems to have Byzantine characteristics and architecture similar to the one in Murano, Italy.

    What an awesome post. I have always been curious about Albania but then again I love all things Balkan. You made me laugh about the driving conditions, looking everywhere when crossing the road and locals asking “why would you come here??” That alone makes me want to go! That national park looks absolutely stunning.

    I have never thought to visit Albania before but it looks and sounds amazing. I love Balkan food and the scenery is stunning. I like the idea that people don’t really travel there, you can explore in peace and find hidden gems.

    Very informative and educational. I have to admit I didn’t really know much about Albania until reading this article. Albania sounds like an amazing country to visit, with so much history. In your opinion, what is a good length of days to stay and explore the country? Great article.

      Hi Rosemary, thank you for your comment. I’m really glad you could learn something new about Albania. As for your question, since it’s a relatively small country 10-14 days should be enough

    Albania looks beautiful, especially the sunset and the Accursed Mountains. So amazing. Looks like a great place for a budget vacation.

    Albania seems like such a beautiful country with a good variety of things to do. The nodding and shaking their heads will probably confuse me haha. It’ll definitely take some getting used to.

    Such an interesting post, thank you! I had no idea the country was predominantly Muslim either.
    I can’t wait to visit – Albania is definitely creeping up people’s lists and I want to go there before too many people do! 🙂
