You want to travel, but don’t want to break the bank? I got news for you. When you visit Albania, you can splurge without breaking the bank. Prices are at least half of the rest of Europe, thus making it easy to get a good value for your money.
BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN ALBANIA
The Albanian capital is one of the least visited capitals in Europe. It’s also one of the few capitals where Islam is the dominant religion. That’s also why the culture is exciting and unique here. In Tirana, you can expect to find the best Baklava in Albania and a busy nightlife with some really cool clubs.
The residents of Tirana do know how to party!
A pristine resort town that offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. You can choose more lively spots or find your own paradise with just an umbrella, two sunbeds and two pedalos. What could possibly be more romantic?
A beautiful coastal town, and the main port for tourism in Albania and boats from abroad. It’s here that you’ll arrive with the boat from Corfu. Besides from being a great starting point for exploring the Albanian Riviera, it’s a nice destination in itself with a lovely harbor, stores, many restaurants, and cafés.
A historic place that even Julius Ceasar himself admired because of its strategic position. Here you can explore the Roman ruins with an old amphitheater and much more. Getting to Butrint from both Saranda and Ksamil is easy.
SYRI I KALTER
A natural gem that shouldn’t be missed out when you’re traveling to Albania. It’s a short drive from Saranda, and here you can enjoy some mesmerizing scenery and one of the most turquoise waters I’ve ever seen. Syri i Kalter means “Blue Eye” translated into English.
And that’s exactly what you’ll see, not literally, but in the water, you’ll see bubbles and where the water is most turquoise you there’s a blueish dark color that reminds you of an iris.
Another big reason to visit Albania is the magical Lake Ohrid, that makes up the natural border of Macedonia and Albania. While most people go to Macedonia to visit Lake Ohrid, it’s definitely possibly to go here from the Albanian side, and it’s cheap to get here by local furgons.
