Sitting between the Adriatic Sea, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia and Greece, Albania is a country full of rich history. The country is still very much unspoilt by the pollution and over-use that many 'Westernised' countries show signs of. This means that you'll find miles of unspoilt and undeveloped beaches, classical cities without the big brand influence and a culture that is largely untouched by Western ways.

The country is split into three main areas, the coastal plain, the mountains and the interior plain. Much of the country (around 75%) is covered in forest.
