In the heart of the Mediterranean, on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Albania, the land of eagles, still relatively unspoiled by globalization, offers an inspiring mixture of civilizations and cultures. Albanian history and culture is fascinating. Butrint, one of the world's archeological wonders - and a Unesco World Heritage site - in the south of Albania provides a glimpse of Mediterranean civilization from the Bronze Age through the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman periods. This ancient country still offers something increasingly rare in Europe, a glance into a culture that is all its own. Raised on a diet of separation and hardship, Albania is distinctly Albanian.
