Albania, located on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe, is a little country with a lot to offer. Beaches stretch across its western Adriatic coast. A string of rugged mountains—perfect for hiking and climbing—are scattered across its landscape. There’s also the newly renovated culture heritage sites, fresh and locally grown cuisine, cosmopolitan cities and rustic villages. And all of this at just a fraction of what it costs to vacation in other European locales … a beer, for instance, costs about 250 Lek, or about two dollars.
