Geography

Location

Albania borders in the north-west with Montenegro, in the north-east with Kosovo, in the east with North Macedonia, in the south-east and south with Greece, in the west with the Adriatic Sea.

The mountainous interior (Inner Albania, High Albania) is preceded by a relatively wide coastal lowland (Lower Albania) traversed by chains of hills. Originally heavily swampy, it was largely meliorated after 1945 and converted into fertile farmland. The mountain ranges of the Albanian Alps trending approximately in a north-south direction(Albanids, continuation of the Dinaric Mountains) are divided into the Inner Albanids (deposits of chromium, copper and iron-nickel ores) made up of metamorphic rocks (serpentinites) and the Outer Albanids made up of series of carbonate rocks (deposits of coal, Natural gas and oil). The mountains reach their greatest heights in the Korabit (Korab) with 2,764 m above sea level on the border with North Macedonia and in the Jezercë with 2,694 m above sea level in the mountain range Prokletije (Bjeshkët e Namuna) in northern Albania. Tectonic disturbances repeatedly cause earthquakes. Intramontane pools like those of Korçë, Peshkopi or Kukës form preferred settlement areas in the mountains. In northern and central Albania, a flat coast (compensation coast) accompanies the lowlands; in the southern Albanian Epirus the mountains reach to the sea (Albanian Riviera). The most important rivers are the Drin, which drains into the Adriatic Sea, with its main tributaries, the Black Drin, which flows from Lake Ohrid, and the White Drin, which flows from Kosovo. Other rivers are Shkumbin, Seman, Vjosë and Mat.

The flowing waters have a steep gradient and are rich in water due to the high rainfall (suitability for hydropower generation), but apart from the Drin, they are hardly regulated.

According to surface design and natural landscape development, a distinction is made between four major landscapes: 1) the Albanian Alps in the north, made up of Mesozoic limestone and dolomites, 2) the highly fragmented mountain range of northern and central inner Albania with the south-east adjoining lake and basin landscape with Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa (both only partially belonging to Albania) and the Korçë basin, 3) the densely populated Lower Albanian flat and hill country with Lake Skadar and compensation coast and 4) the area of ​​the Albanian Epirus, which is characterized by flysch and limestone mountain ranges with embedded basins.

Climate

The overall climate is Mediterranean with warm, dry summers and rainy winters. From south to north, with increasing distance from the coast and higher altitude, it acquires a more continental character with greater temperature contrasts and more frequent precipitation, some of which fall as snow in winter. Despite abundant rainfall (Vlorë 1,050 mm / year, Shkodër 1,700 mm / year), which is only lower in the intramontaneous basins (Korçë 650 mm / year), but in the higher mountains can exceed 3,000 mm / year, Albania has a long period of sunshine. Check thenailmythology to see Albania the Secret Gem of the Mediterranean.

Vegetation and wildlife

Due to the diversity of the landscape and the occurrence of flora and fauna elements from different biogeographical regions (Central Europe, Pontic-Asia Minor steppe area, Mediterranean area), vegetation and fauna are diverse and species-rich. More than half of the forest area is deciduous forest, a quarter is bush forest, the rest is coniferous forest. An evergreen Mediterranean hard leaf zone stretches along a narrow strip of the coast. Inland and with increasing height follow the vegetation levels of the dry forest, cloud forest and in the south of the Mediterranean coniferous forest, above mats (perennials, dwarf shrubs, meadows). Old beech forests in the far north and east of Albania have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017.
