Some more from Albania Private Tour Guide…
The Land of the Eagles closed to the foreigners for almost half century. After the WWII the country aligned itself with the “Iron Curtain” and resulting in the total closure of its borders. Only a few countries were friends to the communist Albania and all the rest were “the enemy”. During the communist period (1946 – 1991), the Albanians did not travel abroad. As a result, a very genuine curiosity for the strangers developed through the years. This curiosity added to the traditional hospitality makes this country one of the best places to visit.
In addition, it is not expensive at all to the average European traveler. Prices vary depending on places and locations. More or less, a meal for two persons, three courses each, would cost around 15 – 20 €. Coffee is very good and beer as well. Recently Albania is becoming more and more competitive related to the wines.
