What have we heard about Albania? Yes, almost nothing! Until recently, this closed country is still an absolute mystery to many!
We offer you to make an individual excursion from Montenegro to the "mysterious" Albania in a comfortable seven-seater minivan or in a car with a licensed Russian guide.
To begin with, in order to visit Albania during the summer period, citizens of the Russian Federation and Belarus do not need visas, but citizens of Ukraine even more so!
Departure from Montenegro early in the morning by car or comfortable 7-seater minivan. We leave through the city of Bar towards Ulcinj. You can get to the Albanian border by two roads - via Ulcinj or the old, narrow, little-known, Montenegrin winding path, but asphalt like most of the mountain roads of Montenegro and moreover, this road is designated in all European navigation systems as the "main road" and "highway" . The second way in my opinion is more picturesque, and more importantly shorter!))
After crossing the Albanian border in 13 km, we will find ourselves in the fourth largest city of Albania - Shkoder, located on the southern shore of Lake Skadar and the mouth of the river Buna, which falls from it. In Montenegro, this river is known as Boyana. At the entrance to Shkodra, there is a view of the ancient Illyrian fortress of Rozaf, according to historical and archaeological facts, this fortress was founded in the 4th century BC.
We included in the tour a walking tour of Shkodra, a city sightseeing from a bird's eye view, a ride to the Rozafa fortress, a photo session with awesome views and near the fortress walls.
Next we move to the medieval city, which is located on the slope of a high mountain - the city of Kruja, going up to it you will enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the beautiful mountain valley at the foot of the city of Kruja.
A walk to the old town of Krui will take place along a street with a medieval bazaar, souvenir shops, bars and restaurants with the most interesting Albanian cuisine, which combined echoes of Turkish, Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. We walk, have lunch, try the famous Skanderberg - tart, strong, but Albanian cognac is quite soft and pleasant to the taste! Which, by the way, many tourists get as souvenirs and gifts brought from Albania.
Also included in the program is a visit to the famous ethnographic museum of Kruisk.
A trip to Albania on our comfortable minivan will take almost a whole day, returning to the Montenegrin coast at about 18:00
