Albania’s Butrint Park, one of the top ten national parks in Europe – The Guardian

The National Park of Butrint has been included in the list of “Top 10 national parks in Europe: readers’ travel tips” by The Guardian. The article lists known national parks in several countries in the European continent, but Butrint Park is described as a collection of “stunning ancient Greek, Roman, Frankish and Ottoman remains”.

“Very few visitors, and stunning ancient Greek, Roman, Frankish and Ottoman remains,” is what led ID4690527 to suggest the Butrint national park in Albania. In the south-west of the country, it is a must-see for fans of ancient history; it boasts a number of significant archaeological sites and is considered a “microcosm of Albanian history” – writes The Guardian.

Butrint National Park is one of the most attractive touristic destinations in Albania for tourists who are interested in the ancient history of Albania and Europe as well. Being located in the crossroads of western and eastern of Europe and not far from the Asian continent, Albania is the land of many historic evidences. Archeologists have made impressing discoveries in many ancient ruins and parks throughout the country.
