Macedonians Invade Albanian Beaches
Vlora beach has turned into an attractive point for vacation to Macedonian tourists
TIRANA, Aug 14 – According to the last expectations from the travel agencies and local authorities more than 200,000 Macedonian visitors are expected to pass their summer vacations in the Albanians beaches this summer.

We are not speaking of ethnic Albanians from Macedonia. No, not counting them. We are speaking of ethnic Macedonians preferring this year to pass their time in Albania, especially along its Riviera in southwest of the country.

Unconfirmed figures report that more than 100,000 Macedonians have come to Albania for their summer holidays so far this year. That is a significant increase compared to a year ago.

Their presence will make this summer season an excellent year for Albanian tourism.

One may ask why Macedonian’s have opted for Albania in such numbers.
