Albania is a beautiful country full of gorgeous beaches and snow-capped mountains and the cost of
living is among the lowest worldwide. It is bordered by Montenegro, Kosovo, the Republic of
Macedonia, Italy and Greece. Albania achieved democracy in 1990, and is rapidly becoming a top
tourist destination. Albania was recommended as a top travel destination by Lonely Planet and in
