About The Republic of Albania

The Republic of Albania is a small, mountainous country on south-eastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, bordering the Adriatic Sea to the west and with land borders to Greece to the south and Serbia and Montenegro to the east. Albania occupies an important strategic location in the Balkans along the Strait of Otranto which links the Adriatic Sea to the Ionian Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

The name Albania is derived from an ancient Illyrian tribe, the Albanoi, forebears of the modern Albanians. The Albanian name for the country is Shqiperise or ‘Land of the Eagle’. The capital of Albania is Tirana and its national independence day is 28 November. Albania’s population is approximately 3 million (2011 est).
