It’s Time to Discover Albania – Albania might not be the first destination that comes to mind when you picture yourself on vacation. But for those who’ve been here and seen the beauty of this country, it’s one of those places they long to return to. Brimming with nature, historic architecture, and possibilities, after you’ve been to Albania, you’ll wonder why you waited so long. This is a country that will have you falling in love all over again with travelling, exploring, and all the adventures in between. Here’s just a few of the sights you’ll be glad you discovered:
Nostalgia lovers will enjoy Albania’s capital city of Tirana. Architecture reminiscent of the Ottoman empire abounds, in addition to more recent nods towards the time of communist rule. You’ll find tons of museums, galleries, and more to explore and you can discover all of this by cable car through the city. Tirana is a modern city surrounded by dense forests, the canopies of which you’ll sail above on your cable car ride.
For a bit of relaxation, nothing beats soaking in a thermal bath. Underneath a bridge built during medieval times, Benja Hot Springs have been attracting bathers for centuries. Local residents are convinced these warm waters possess healing qualities. Located in Permeti, there’s nothing in the world that comes closer to a natural spa treatment.
And, of course, no vacation is truly complete without some sun time on a stretch of beach. Albania’s beaches are some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. When Albania was under communist rule, the country was quite cut off from the rest of the world and is only recently beginning to emerge as one of the hottest new tourist destinations. But thanks to being new to tourism, the region’s landscapes have a raw, pure, untouched vibe. Albania’s beaches do, as well. The coast’s larger beaches are beginning to experience hordes of tourists, but there are still many secluded spots you can only reach on foot.
