On this tour, you can admire the large differences between Macedonia and Albania, in the landscape, culture, art, etc. Until recently, Albania was a closed country, and now it is a popular tourist destination. On this day, you will see the capital of Albania, Tirana, and the main tourist city in Albania, Duress, settled on the shores of the Adriatic Sea.
The driver/guide will pick you up from your hotel or any location of your preference in Ohrid. We drive to the Macedonian-Albanian border. We cross the border at Kjafasan (near Struga) and drive to the capital of Albania, Tirana (approximately 2 and a half hours). On halfway we stop for a coffee break. In Tirana we shall visit the National Museum, “Mausoleum of dictator Enver Hoxha” and the “Ethem Bey Mosque”, as well as the bunker of Enver Hoxha. We walk in the city park and then we have 1 hour free time in the city. We leave Tirana and head to the ancient town and port of Durres.
