Albania is a country of Muslims but without fanaticism and ostentatious faith. There are several rules that you should necessarily remember when coming to the country so that your vacation will be calm. It is not recommended to enter into disputes with elders and men. And keep in mind that when you nod your head, you say no, whereas when you shake your head from side to side, you say yes.
Popular Tours, or What to Visit in Albania
In summer, you can enter Albania without a visa for 90 days, but in other periods you will need a visa. If you are a holder of a valid multiple-entry Schengen visa, you can freely enter the territory of the Republic of Albania.
Tirana is the country’s capital that will surprise you with the juxtaposition of peculiar oriental architecture with European buildings. The Turks that founded the city built mosques, baths, bakeries, and shops at the crossroads of trade routes.
The “Albanian Maldives,” that is, the village of Ksamil, will also please tourists with beaches and budget-friendly accommodation. Durrës and Vlorë are the most popular resorts. There, besides the magnificent beaches and fascinating sunsets, you can see the Roman amphitheater, the mosque, as well as go to the baths, visit the aqueduct, and admire the intricate mosaics.
There you will also be able to ride catamarans and jet skis and to dance at a beach party in the evening.
