Can Albania be considered secure?
How secure is Albania (particularly in the mountains) compared to countries like Ukraine or Romania? What security issues should a traveller take into account, such as organized crime or landmines?
Short answer: Nothing out of the usual.
The days of bandits roaming the mountains seem to be long gone. According the US State Department, the main risks are pickpocketing and theft from cars, the same as in Romania and the Ukraine (and pretty much anywhere in Europe).
Landmines were laid on the Kosovo-Albania border in the 1990s, but according to the UNDP they were all cleared out by 2006.
