ALBANIA USP AS A DESTINATION

Albania has natural beauty in such abundance that you might wonder why its taken 20 years for the country to take off as a tourist destination since the end of a particularly brutal strain of communism in 1991. Albania offers a remarkable array of unique attractions, not least due to this very isolation: ancient mountain codes of behaviour, forgotten archaeological sites and villages where time seems to have stood still are all on the menu. Albania has become the sleeper hit of the Balkans. But hurry here, as word is well and truly out. Tirana, is the Albanian capital. Albania is an outstanding holiday destination. Tirana is the beating heart of Albania, where this tiny nations hopes and dreams coalesce into a vibrant whirl of traffic, brash consumerism and unfettered fun.


BEST TIME TO VISIT :

Coastal Albania has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. Summer is the peak tourist season, when people from the sweltering interior escape temperatures that can reach the high 30s in July. The high mountains often experience heavy snow between November and March. The best time to visit Albania is spring or autumn. Fall, though not as warm as summer, is still a good time to visit in the month of February. The tourists will diminish with the fading sunlight, and you will be left with a more peaceful city and colorful parks.
