 The World Tourism Organization ranks Albania in third place for tourism growth, with Qatar and Saudi Arabia in first place due to international events, local media reports.

Albania has experienced a 54% increase in the number of tourists in the first three months of this year compared to 2019, making it the third-ranked country in the world.

Overall, international tourist arrivals reached 80% of pre-pandemic levels in the first quarter of 2023.

Around 235 million tourists traveled internationally in the first three months, more than double the same period in 2022. However, the tourism recovery also faces some challenges.

Due to its long coastline, Albania offers several beaches from the north to the south, such as Velipoja in Shkodra, Shengjin in Lezha, Durres, Vlora, Himara, Saranda, etc., which are frequented not only by Albanians but also by foreign nationals who choose Albania as a tourist destination during the summer months. Additionally, Gjirokastra, Berat, Butrint, Kruja, Tirana, Shkodra, etc., are sought-after destinations for historical and cultural tourism.

Moreover, our country has conditions for year-round tourism due to its diverse terrain, which provides opportunities for tourism from the south to the north. The tourist villages in the northern part of the country have recently seen a high number of tourists, and infrastructure for adventure tourism is also being developed.

Albania also has numerous rivers, lagoons, and national parks that attract tourists from all over the world.

Our country has surpassed several neighboring countries such as Serbia, Bulgaria, and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as countries with a greater influence in the tourism sector like Turkey.
