Sara: Everyone’s So Friendly

One awesome thing about living in Albania is how friendly everyone is. People here are so welcoming, and it feels like one big friendly community. It’s actually interesting how, whether you’re chatting with neighbors or meeting familiar faces in the markets, it’s hard to walk away without a brief conversation. There’s this incredible energy that people here radiate. And the weather? It’s just perfect. Not too cold at all. The nice weather (apart from some winter days) makes it so easy to explore and enjoy the cool places around. You can take a walk anytime without having to layer up with hundreds of clothes, and that’s always a win!

The weather? It’s simply perfect for exploring the country’s diverse landscapes without the burden of too many layers.

Erjona: Our Nature Is Diverse And Awe-Inspiring

What We Love About Albania: Top Tips From Our Magic Towns Team 18

As an Albanian living here for over 40 years, my heart is deeply rooted in this land. Albania, my home, is embedded in my being – its traditions, culture, passionate people, and patriotic spirit define who I am. We’re a country that has undergone significant changes, learning and growing through both good and challenging times.

What I cherish most about Albania are three things: the people, nature, and our culture and traditions. The hospitality here is unmatched; people are always ready to lend a hand or share a meal. We still hold community and family values dear, and I hope these continue to thrive amidst modern transformations.

Our nature is diverse and awe-inspiring, from pristine beaches to unexplored mountains and historical architecture. Each region offers its own unique beauty and story. And our culture is rich; we respect each other’s beliefs and stay united by our common identity.

There is not one scenery that you can think of that is not available in Albania. Mountains, lakes, wonderful beaches, white sand black sand, rocky, cliffy, hot springs, rivers, fields, and a breathtaking scenery of the old architecture, filled with thousands of years of history.

Albania is a destination that deserves a spot on your travel list. With its geographical diversity offering both mountains and beaches, there are plenty of destinations to choose from. Hiking is one of my favourite activities, bringing along breathtaking views, fresh air, and even snow for those adventurous enough to explore further.

The hospitable people you meet are always welcoming, often inviting you to stop by after a long journey. For history enthusiasts, Albania’s castles play a significant role in our cultural heritage. Places like BUNK’ART and other remnants of our communist past provide a vivid window into Albania’s history and its remarkable transformation.

Albania’s heart is in its people – always ready to welcome you with open arms after a long journey.
