Travelogue for Shëngjin-Lezhë 2nd Draft – Albania Travel Video


Shëngjin is a coastal town and a former municipality in the Lezhë County, northwestern Albania and is a growing tourist destination, well known for its beaches and resort accommodations. Shëngjin is one of many cities within the District of Lezhë and is home to one of Albania’s entry ports, Port of Shëngjin.

Lezhë is a town and municipality in northwest Albania, in the county with the same name. In ancient history it was an ancient Greek colony named Lissus. The latter is an Archaeological Park of Albania. Lezhë County is one of the 12 counties of Albania and its capital is the city Lezhë. Lezhë is a small city in Coastal Albania in Albania, and part of the historic Mirdita region. Lately there has been new development in terms of seaside hotels and countryside guesthouses.

Lezhë is about 8 km far from the excellent beach of Shengjin (Saint-Gean), and about 30 km south of Shkodra, and 50 km north of Tirana. With the newer construction of the highway that goes aside this city, it is nicely connected with major cities.

This video is a travelogue in two northwest places in Albania. Each of these places is offering amazing beauties. I took a seven day trip over there and I had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Adriatic Sea, amazing sand beaches and in the other city there are a lot of historical monuments, museums and ancient castles. The Adriatic Sea is a body of water separating the Italian Peninsula from the Balkan peninsula and the Apennine Mountains from the Dinaric Alps and adjacent ranges and is in the northernmost arm of the Mediterranean Sea. The countries with coasts on the Adriatic are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia. And of course at the end of the day I just relax and sit on the beach, watch the sunset and listen to the sound of the sea.
