Driving Directions Albania
ALBANIA is a small mountainous republic in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. Its immediate neighbors are Greece, Serbia (Montenegro) and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and it is bounded to the west by the Adriatic Sea. Away from the coast, the land rises to form a series of wild and rugged hills and mountains that attain heights of 2,134-2,438 meters or 7,000-8,000 feet. In the north, these form the southernmost extension of the Dinaric Alps and are called the Albanian Alps.
