This time: Albania!
“Hidden gem” is an overused word, but when talking about Albania both words have their true sense.

After the fall of Communism, Albania was at once revealed to the world. Rugged mountain scapes, immensely rich of deep turquoise blue water flowing through it’s rivers, hot springs, a Mediterranean vibe, the friendliest people and last but not least the highly fascinating history and heritage; castles, ruins from the big empires to the bunkers left in the past century.
