View a Map of Albania

Albania (Albanian: Shqipëria) is a small country in the Balkans. It shares borders with Greece, the Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, and Montenegro.

While the relative majority of the people in Albania are of Muslim heritage (75-80%), according to the polls, around 35% of the Albanians are agnostics; 22% are atheists; 19% are Muslim; 15% are orthodox; 8% are Catholics and 1% are of other religions. Mixed marriages are very common and in some places, even the rule.

Traditional Albanian culture honors the role and person of the guest. In return for this place of honor, respect is expected from the guest. Albanians enjoy long walks of the city streets, drinking coffee, and among the younger generations, partaking in nightlife activities such as cafe lounging and dancing. Albania is a poor country by European standards.
