Thirty years ago, Ksamil (Albania) was an area reserved for soldiers of the last Stalinist state of Europe. Today, these beaches welcome more than 1 million visitors every summer, many of them Italians. ” Certainly in a few years, mass tourism will also happen in Albania, ” said a man interviewed. In the country, the holiday week, including the plane, is around € 1,000. the groups of retirees are majority of the 45 000 French tourists of last year. If the reception facilities are a little sketchy, it reinforces the feeling of being a little pioneer for these visitors .

A country closed until 1991

Between 1945 and 1991, Enver Hoxha’s Stalinist regime closed the country twice. All contact was prohibited with foreigners. Today, holiday real estate finds at prices that do not exist anywhere else.
