Excursion
Albania was under the dictatorship of Enver Hoxha for over forty years, it was a closed country. Now Albania is one of the most perspective country on the Balkan and year after year their progress can be seen by the naked eye. Still the bunkers (around 700 000 of them) and other evidence of its communist regime and stagnation in time remain. For now.
The trip starts with a drive along picturesque Montenegrian coast.  A small coffee break is planed for your convenience and admiration of St. Stefan peninsula. After we have crossed the Albanian boarder we shell progress towards Skutari district and its capital Shkoder which is situated on the outlet of Lake Scutari.  Its bazaar and mosques give Shkoder an oriental appearance but the finest of its buildings are in the old citadel Rozafa and a Catholic Cathedral. Their architectural origin crosses time from the Roman, Venetian and Turkish period.  Lunch will provide a taste of traditional Albanian cuisine.
After sightseeing some free time remains for shopping.
