A small, mountainous country in the Balkan peninsula of Europe, Albania is often overlooked as a holiday destination in favour of more well-known countries.

But with vast stretches of golden beaches, UNESCO towns and a rich history, Albania is well worth the trip.

We’ve rounded up the 7 most photographic places in this pretty spot, so you can get the perfect Albania Instagram during your travels.

1. Lake Koman
