British prestigious newspaper 'The Guardian' has listed Albania as one of the best European destinations for mountain holidays and lakes. According to this media, Albania is one of the countries that should not be missed, because it offers a lot of both stunning landscapes and extraordinary gastronomy.
"With some of Europe's most pristine scenery, ancient pastoral traditions little-altered by modern life, and a title to capture the imagination, Albania's Accursed mountains make for a wild holiday with an element of time travel. These peaks, which span the borders of Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro, have been easier to explore since 2012, when a hiking route, Peaks of the Balkans, opened to tempt walkers. Meeting mountain folk to learn about their well-preserved culture on visits to isolated villages is a major selling point, and accommodation is in old stone farmhouses where home-cooked meals include bean soup, spinach pie and roast lamb, with oregano tea, sheep's milk, Turkish coffee or plum raki, depending on the mood", it is said in the article of the famous British.
Other destinations that suggest "The Guardian" are French, Austrian and Swiss alps, but also places like Italy, Ireland, Spain etc.
