The Republic of Albania which is the official name of the country is located in Southeastern Europe.

-       -  The Lynx looks a lot like a domestic cat but a little larger and patterns of a cheetah. This animal has long pointed ears and although has been extinct in many parts of the world, it still survives in Albania.

-       -  More than two thirds of the population is Islam. Other religions are Albanian Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic. This country is known for the harmony between the religions to the extent that inter-religion marriages are not only popular but a rule in some parts of the country.

-  The Et'hem Beu Mosque in Tirana (shown) was built from 1794 and completed in 1821 by Mulla Beu. A magnificent architectural design, it is one of the most significant monuments in Albania
