Northern Albania offers only 2 attractions , Shėngjin and Velipojė
Shėngjin is located in Lezha , town that borders city of Shkodėr
Velipojė is part of Shkodėr County but si much smaller in size than Shėngjin
Shėngjin is Albania's 4th port

But , Albania's 2 biggest beaches are those of Durrės and Golem located in Central coast.
Durrės beach is located throughout the whole coast of Durrės with Vollga being its primary attraction.
It's always been Albania's nr.1 beach
King Zog's Palace was built here up on the hill

Golem beach is second most visited beach.
It is located in Kavajė circle and it has 2 attractions.
Golem Main beach and Mali i Robit which is about 2 km off to the left.
Tourism in this area of Albania has been totally booming in the past 10 years

I havent posted photos of beaches of this area but i will do so when i find any

Albania has really shocked me.. I never thought of it as beautiful.. but more as a poor little country under Serbia. Where are the tourists that come to Albania (if any) from?

Most of the tourists are obviously albanians of Kosovo and Macedonia and also Greece.
But , you have swiss , dutch and germans who visit as well not to mention a few americans
Tourism does not generate as much money for the economy as it should considering we have a large coast line

We're in a transition in BiH also, Football. The creepy, crazy, war-zone tourists have worn away over the last four or five years - but the normal, peacetime tourists have not really returned that quickly. I was hoping it would be a transition from one to the other quite quickly...but it seems BiH will have a time of relative low, stable tourism until it really picks up to pre-war levels and beyond. It's just a matter of getting the word out. I've had people in the West ask me, as recently as last year, how I can use a computer in a war zone.

Albania could make millions from tourist because it is a beutifull country but it needs to advertise itself around the world.

These are only a few pics of our large coastline
There are beaches in Albania where no one lives or has seen , they are totally virgin
These pics are from major parts of the South where you see more rocky coast and rougher sand where in some areas you have rocks instead of sand which is incredible
If you go to certain villages located on the coast , you will be amazed at the scenery and the potential there

What is another amazing fact is its approximaty with the mountains
Albania is 70% mountains
Dajti Mountain from Durres beach is only 35 minutes at most
Saranda is so near the mountains they have in Vlora county by Gjirokastra cirlce
There are not many places in the world that can offer this

You are right
Our government has done a poor job in advertising its Tourism plus people have a negative view of Albania
They think Albania is a backward country filled with crime but this is not the case at all
If you see the country for yourself you will like it

Yes, Bosnia and Herzegovina also has great potential for the tourism. Such as Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina is having the problems of the "stereotypes" and the lack of information out there. Once the country advertises some more, I know that the country will get its pre-war level in a matter of a year!

Football Rules - I am really happy that you've joined the forum, and that your showing us all these really wonderful pictures of Albania! Best of luck to both our countries, and a clear future awaits!

Sarajevo - the only city where you could have lived in socialism, witnessed the Olympics Games, lived in a dictatorship, survived the longest siege in the recorded history of mankind, attended one of the most famous rock concerts and papal visits in recorded human history, and STILL be less than 25 years old.

Thanks Mimica
Me personally , i had only seen Sarajevo in TV
I had no clue how it looked in real photos until i joined this forum
I am immpressed although i do believe Sarajevo needs much work to get to becoming a true modern city of the future
And , looking at the structure of Sarajevo , it has great potential although i am not a big fan of high-rises
Sarajevo would be much prettier without them
Bosnia-Hercegovina's image will change with time
