Albania is the last unexplored area of the Europian touristic map, so the interest to visit this small and beautiful country is growing more and more. Albania has become a favorite destination for travelers. Having been almost entirely closed off under the hard-line communist regime for many decades, the country is still considered an exotic tourist destination. The natural scenery and beauty of the mountainous countryside is therefore largely unspoilt. Visitors can discover gorgeous beaches.
