About Albania

The alluring country of Albania exists at the edges of both the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea, a location that lends itself to the country's beautiful oceanic landscapes that come in stunning shades of aquamarine. With a history dating back at least to the Stone Age, Albania today presents a unique display of Southeastern European culture and is one of the quickest-rising tourist destinations on the continent. Since independence in 1912, Albania went through a series of transformations, often difficult and at the hands of other countries. Independent Albania today is a small but proud Balkan state with a lot to offer.
