Eastern Europe - Albania (Chapter)
This is the Abania chapter from Lonely Planet's Eastern Europe guidebook.
Albania offers an array of unique attractions, including ancient mountain codes of behaviour, forgotten archaeological sites and villages where time seems to have stood still. It also has stunning mountain scenery, a thriving capital in Tirana and beaches to rival any elsewhere in the Mediterranean.
