Southern Albania

As the name suggests, this region is located on the south of the country. One of the most popular cities of the region is Berat, built on the edge of a mountain....

This city is also part of the UNESCO programme. What makes it really impressive is both the architecture and the river that crosses it. To the east of the city, you can find Tomorri National Park, one of the best places of the country to go hiking. This park is mostly known for his massif and canyon, where many treks are possible. On the other side, there is the Karaburun-Sazan Marine Park. Feel free to go and explore the beaches and the hidden creeks of the region, and if you are lucky enough you might see some of the rare animal species. The last National Park in the region is Butrint, also known for hiking: that national park includes the Osum canyon, Osum river and Tomorr massif, a sacred site for Christians and Bekatshis.
