In popular culture, Albania has been coloured as a haven for thugs, criminals, and gangsters. While we understand that perception might make for good movies, like Taken (2008), it’s wholly untrue! In reality, Albania is a beautiful and incredibly safe place to visit and live.
That’s why we’ve started this campaign to personally appeal to famed Taken actor, Mr. Liam Neeson. Watch the video and join us by signing the petition to get Mr. Neeson to Albania and Be Taken by its beautiful nature, hospitality and eternal traditions.”
Albania, located on Southeastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, is a small country with Adriatic and Ionian coastlines and an interior crossed by the Albanian Alps. The climate is distinctly Mediterranean.
The country was isolated for much of the second half of the 20th-century under the eccentric leadership of Enver Hoxha. Albania has many castles and archaeological sites and the capital city Tirana centres on sprawling Skanderbeg Square, site of the National History Museum.
