A L B A N I A

  • GlobeRovers: Rating: 4 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "The land of Mother Theresa"
  • Eagle Eye: Ruled until 1985 by hard line Communist Enver Hoxha (died April '85), Albania's dark days are long gone. Its a lovely country and capital Tirana has more Mercedes Benz cars per capita I have ever seen....though Albania remains one of the poorest countries in Europe. Go figure!
  • Hot Spots: Funky Tirana with lots of restaurants and late night entertainment. Mountains and coastline in the south.
  • The Low-down: Good value for money but not an overly exciting destination.
