Attractions in Albania

I bought my ticket to Albania from Austrian Airlines. I had gone to Albania for my holiday to see its beautiful attractions. I visited Rozafa Castle and Berat Castle which are beautiful castles with lots of history. Albania also has gorgeous natural views including two famous mountains; Mount Dajt and Mount Korab. The latter is the highest mountain in Albania and the Republic of Macedonia whose peak forms a frontier between the two countries. Be sure to visit Skanderbeg Square which is the main plaza in the center of Tirana and Albania Berat National Ethnographic Museum.
