Albania is officially recognized as the Republic of Albania and is a country based in Southeastern Europe. It shares its boundaries with Montenegro to the northwest, Kosovo to the northeast, North Macedonia to the east, and Greece to the south. The Sea of Otranto divides it from Italy, less than 72 km so far. Tirana is the capital of Albania and is covered by the cities Durres, Vlorë, and Shkodë. The country is 70% covered with mountains and rich in flora and fauna. The country has a diverse landscape, with snow-capped mountains in the Albanian Alps as well as the Korab, Skanderbeg, Pindus, and Ceraunian Mountains, as well as hot and sunny coasts on the Albanian Adriatic and Ionian Seas along the Mediterranean Sea.

Albania is a developing country and a member of the United Nations, World Bank, UNESCO, NATO, WTO, COE, OSCE, and OIC. The country ranks 67th on the Human Development Index and has an upper-middle-income economy dominated by the service sector, followed by manufacturing. It is also a constitutional republic with a unitary parliamentary democracy. Since 2014, it has been an official candidate for membership in the European Union. It is a founding member of the Energy Community, together with the Organization for Economic Cooperation in the Black Sea and the Union for the Mediterranean. The country was a socialist republic under the 1976 constitution. The constitution intended that “the rights of citizens are indivisible from the fulfillment of their duties and cannot be exercised in opposition to the socialist order”. There are 140 members in the unicameral People’s Assembly from which, 100 are directly elected and 40 are elected by proportional representation. The People’s Assembly elects the President for a five-year term. The cabinet is constituted by the prime minister, who is appointed by the president and approved by parliament.

Let us talk about the longest river in Albania the Drin (about 175 miles [280 km]), which originates in Kosovo. The Seman, Shkumbin, and Vjos are additional significant rivers that drain the western plains' core region. There are many lakes in Albania, but Lake Scutari (also known as Lake Shkoder) in the northwest and Lakes Ohrid and Prespa along the eastern border are the most famous in the country.

As we have mentioned earlier Albania is rich in flora and fauna. Forests cover about one-third of the land. Mediterranean plants like laurel and myrtle cover the coastal lowlands. Oak woodlands dominate the areas above the lowlands. A region of beeches and pines rises over the oak belt, starting at 3,000 feet (900 meters), and Alpine pastures are found above the timberline. Many migratory species, including swallows, storks, ducks, geese, and pelicans, are pulled to the warm coastal climate. Fish found in Albania's coastal waters include sardines and mullets, and trout can be found in alpine streams and lakes.
