The prestigious American magazine "National Geographic" which focuses on travel, nature and wildlife, has listed Albania among the top 21 destinations that should not be lost in 2018.
In the "National Geographic" list Albania stands beside some of the most beautiful places in the globe, and is presented with a picture by Elaine Ferrito Calip, who captured the moment when a diver explores a Roman amphorae cargo left over by one flooded ship.
Why Go Now: Dive in relatively unexplored waters:
Sunken aqueducts, shipwrecks, and rarely visited caves are a few of the relatively untouched treasures awaiting divers in Albania. Decades of isolation under communist leader Enver Hoxha limited development and inadvertently preserved underwater cultural heritage, particularly off the southern coast.
FUN FACT: Hoxha famously banned scuba diving to prevent Albanians from escaping,” writes ‘National Geographic’ while describing Albania.
