The cheapest country to visit in Europe is Albania, located in the southeast of the European Balkan Peninsula, according to content creator Soypilisha on Instagram. As explained by the user, you can get very good prices on accommodations and even access discounts. In addition, among its main attractions are the beaches of the Albanian Riviera, castles, and several archaeological sites.

According to the content creator, it is possible to find lodging, food, and transportation at very good prices, which is why he referred to it as a perfect tourist spot for those who want to maximize their budget.

Why is Albania a cheap tourist destination in Europe?

Albania is an inexpensive country to visit because it offers a unique experience at very low prices. For example, staying in a private apartment costs approximately €10.

On the other hand, in this country, tourists can practically choose the accommodations they want because many owners operate through Booking and Airbnb platforms. “Travelers can find options that suit their needs and budget. Furthermore, by paying directly to the host, it is possible to obtain additional discounts,” he emphasized.

Another alternative to getting the best prices on food can be through the TripAdvisor application. It is estimated that eating in local restaurants costs approximately €8.

Another way to enjoy your trip could be by renting a car, which costs approximately €25 per day. The recommendation is to use the Kayak platform.

The climate in Albania varies considerably between the coast and the mountainous interior. Overall, the country enjoys pleasant weather throughout the year. The coast experiences typical Mediterranean weather with hot, dry summers and mild, humid winters, where the average temperature in summer is 24°C. On the other hand, the mountains have a more continental climate with cold subarctic winters and cooler summers, especially at higher altitudes.

In Tirana, the capital located about 30 kilometers from the coast, the climate is similar to the coastal although slightly cooler at night.
