ALBANIA

This country is only the size of Wales, yet the terrain and lack of infrastructure make it one of the most exciting and interesting countries to visit. Although the country is making strenuous efforts to attract tourists one can still feel the sense of travelling in the steps of Byron and Lear. The Illyria of the Classical world with an ancient language, it is one of the newest countries on the edge of Europe. It can be approached from Northern Greece or Corfu or straight into Tirana, the capital. Orthodox, Catholic and Muslim faiths ensure fine buildings, extraordinary landscape and delicious food.
