Albania, which is sandwiched between Montenegro, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Greece, sometimes appears to be a forgotten corner of Europe. And that's a genuine pity. From historic cities to magnificent mountain ranges and unspoiled beaches, this ancient country has a lot to offer.

Albania is as old as Ancient Greece and Rome, with settlements dating back to the 4th century BC. It's becoming a more contemporary country with many fantastic attractions, but it's still off the beaten road. Albania is a fantastic spot to visit if you're searching for a destination that hasn't been overrun by mass tourism but yet has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty and history. When you visit Albania, you'll notice that it's essentially a mix of Croatia, Greece, and Italy, but without the people.

If you're considering visiting Albania—which you should, of course—you might be wondering where you should go. Akbar Travels offers some of the best Albania tour packages from Dubai in the UAE. You can also create your own DIY Albania tour packages by simply talking to one of our agents.

The National Park

The National Park is an isolated territory high in the Albanian Alps in the far north of the country. It is home to attractions such as the Lock-in Tower, a running watermill, and the Grunnas Waterfall, and is considered one of Albania's most attractive spots by some nature enthusiasts.

Then, the park's namesake settlement is about as far away from civilization as a village can get in Europe. It can only be reached through a 25-kilometer dirt road that is impassable in the winter. Even in the summer, a 4WD vehicle may be required to get there. You will be rewarded with isolation and tranquility in the midst of a gorgeous environment as a result of your efforts.

Kruja

Kruja, a short drive northeast of Tirana, is home to the magnificent Kruja Castle, an Albanian national symbol. The famed Skanderberg Museum is housed in this castle and is a must-see site for all first-time visitors to Albania.

Kruja Castle is significant because it was here that George Kastrioti Skanderberg, an Albanian national hero, defended the country against an Ottoman invasion. The castle offers stunning views of the Adriatic Sea in addition to its fascinating history.

Llogara National Park

Llogara National Park is located in the country's southwest corner and is home to one of the most breathtaking drives in southeastern Europe. The Llogara Pass is the park's main feature and attraction, a route that rises 1,000 meters above sea level—quite astounding considering the park's proximity to the Adriatic coast.

At the top of the pass, you'll find a cluster of eateries and other businesses, providing the ideal vantage point for taking in the beautiful views.

Gjirokaster

If you enjoy history, Gjirokaster, a historical city in southern Albania, is a must-see. The city's old core is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its homogeneous architectural style, which dates from the Ottoman Empire.

Gjirokaster also features a military museum and the Gjirokaster Fortress, which is the site of the popular and fascinating Gjirokaster National Folklore Festival, which takes place every five years.

Shkoder

Shkoder is a town in northwest Albania with several features near the Montenegrin border. Shkoder, a strategically positioned town, has had its fair share of battles and wars, dating back to Roman times and more recently aristocratic feuds. The ruins of Rozafa Castle are, unsurprisingly, Shkoder's principal attraction. Both the castle and the museum displaying the city's history are open to the public.

Aside from the castle, Shkoder is home to Lake Shkoder, which is a popular tourist destination. This lake, which is also known as Lake Skadar in Montenegro, is the largest in southeastern Europe and spans both nations.

Lake Ohrid

Lake Ohrid is another Albanian lake that should be included in any travel itinerary. This lake, too, is shared by two countries: Albania and Macedonia, and it has similar tourism, environmental, and historical significance.

Lake Ohrid is one of Europe's oldest and deepest lakes, supporting a diverse range of animal and plant species, many of which are peculiar to the area. Because of the importance of its aquatic ecology, UNESCO has designated the lake as a World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.

Tirana

Most travelers begin their journey in Tirana, Albania's capital. It is advised that you take your time when visiting this relatively unknown city. The city is home to several cultural and historical institutions, as well as being the country's economic and political hub. It's the ideal location for getting to know the country.

The Et'hem Bey Mosque, Skanderberg Square, and the National Historical Museum are three landmark attractions that you must see.

Berat

Berat, in the heart of Albania, is without a doubt one of the nicest destinations to visit. It is also one of the country's oldest towns. Berat, often known as "the City of a Thousand Windows," should be a highlight of your trip.

The Kalaja Castle, which has multiple mosques and churches and is still inhabited by many people, is a notable attraction. The Mangalam Quarter and the Church of St. Mary of Blachernae are not to be missed. Berat is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical and cultural significance.

Albanian Riviera

The Albanian Riviera, located in the country's southwest, is famed for its music festivals, superb restaurants, lively nightlife, and stunning beaches, and is arguably the most popular tourist attraction in Albania.

Because the tourist industry is still in its infancy here, there are far fewer visitors than in other similar-looking Adriatic sites. In relative solitude and quiet, you may enjoy gorgeous beaches and wonderful weather. Furthermore, authentic landscapes and rough mountains may be seen immediately behind the beaches. You can easily get away if this is still too hectic for you.
