The new issue of Travel Magazine it`s about the Balkans!

June 14, 2022 || views

It has been more than a decade that the Balkans are no longer called the Balkan Peninsula but the Balkans, to personify that there are already many countries together, which are named with the plural of this word but have one thing in common; can be visited all together on a long tour.Therefore, in the second decade of the publication of our magazine, we have decided to go one step further and consider this publication a reflection of the Balkans and not only of Albania and other Albanian countries in the Balkans. They are so similar and different at the same time and we have a lot to share and a lot to tell about each other, what makes us similar and what makes us unique.
And we think we are absolutely right when we say that already, the Balkans is a single destination waiting for you to come and discover.
Have a nice trip with the new issue of “Travel The Balkans”!



Ka tashmë më shumë se një dekadë që Ballkani u ofrohet turistëve si një paketë e vetme për “round trips” dhe kjo ka bërë të mundur që kufijtë administrativë të mos ekzistojnë. Sepse atë që politika e ndan, turizmi e bashkon. Prandaj edhe ne, në dekadën e dytë të botimit të revistës tonë, kemi vendosur të hidhemi një hap më përtej e ta konsiderojmë këtë botim një pasqyrë tashmë të Ballkanit e jo vetëm të Shqipërisë dhe shteteve të tjera shqiptare në Ballkan. Ato janë aq të ngjashme e të ndryshme njëkohësisht e ne kemi shumë për të ndarë e shumë për të treguar për njëri-tjetrin, se çfarë na bën të ngjashëm e çfarë na bën unikë. Dhe mendojmë se kemi plotësisht të drejtë kur themi se tashmë, Ballkani është një destinacion i vetëm që po ju pret të vini e ta zbuloni.

Editor`s letter – This lovely summer of 2022

Before you really enjoy your next trip to the Balkans, get a touch through the new issue of our magazine, a trip that will only enrich your soul and entertain your senses!


Editorial – Balkan now is a single getaway

The Balkans and the Mediterranean for many reasons is today the most “sought after” destination in the world and if we were to mention just a few reasons why, some of them would be: the most ideal climate on the planet, which can fully express all four seasons, the beauty of a rare nature and incredible geographical diversity but also cultural diversity and historical heritage, very tasty food

Special Itinerary – Albania, a kaleidoscope for the Balkan traveler

This all started about five months ago with BATI Tourism awards in Bulgaria.  It was post COVID we were bursting with energy and desire to restart touristic activity in spite of the hardship of the past. So when Ambassador Donika Hoxha suggested a FAM Tour to open Albania to the Bulgarian tourist, we jumped at the opportunity to do it.

Human Stories – In memory of Pier Paolo Ambrosi, a visionary with a kind smile

“I arrived in Albania the 9th July 1991, it was a Tuesday. I was not expecting at all that for me another life and another story would start, which has lasted for over a quarter of a century, and that Albania and the Albanians would become my country and my people. I look back at my life and I realized that after many years I still do not have anything that it is mine. Difficult to understand and to justify as well. I can only say that I did not come for me. I tried to work and do it well.”

That is what wrote few years ago Pier Paolo Ambrosi, passed away on the 2nd of June 2021.
