Albanian Trip is now offering virtual seminars about Albania, hosted by professionals in their field! The talks will be on a variety of topics such as history, nature, cuisine, socialist realism art, and the tourist experience through photographs, onsite tours, and stories. We will share our upcoming talks on social media (follow our Facebook page!) and will update this page as more guides and experts set up their talks.
Seminar tickets can be purchased by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org – we will make sure you are signed up and you can pay through PayPal. All meetings will be hosted using Zoom, and we will send you the link to the seminar up to a week before (unless you are joining last minute – no worries!) We are trying to use times that are favourable to English-speaking audiences in North America as well as Western Europe. All times are posted in Tirana time (CET). If you paid for a seminar but can’t attend, you can access a copy of it up to two weeks after the date!
If you are interested in presenting a talk, please send us an email (email@example.com) and pitch us your idea! We’d be happy to talk about options with you.
The duration of each talk will be approximately one hour, with 30 minutes for questions and answers at the end!
Wednesday 17 March 2021 – 17h00 CET – “Being a Child in Communist Albania” with Elton Caushi
Sunday 21 March 2021 – 18h00 CET – “From Independence to Democracy” with University of Tirana Professor Andi Pinari!
Thursday 1 April 2021 – 18h00 CET – “Skanderbeg: A Romantic and Historical Account of An Albanian Hero” with Elton Caushi

You can also book a private presentation! We will arrange for an Albanian specialist to give a lecture for your group through us. In that case we will customize the theme of our talk to better fit your interest – this could also be a great way for Albanian emigrant families to teach their children more about their land of origin. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information!
