Road accidents are one of the main causes of death in Albania, for drivers and pedestrians. You absolutely must travel by day all over Albania, essentially because of the bad condition of road infrastructures or the cars themselves, which are often dilapidated. The north east of the country, Bajram Curri /Tropoja, is a very sensitive sector as far as organized crime is concerned, and, in addition, it is difficult to access without a 4X4 vehicle.
In the region of Shkodër, in the north, traffic to Montenegro meets no major difficulty on the Shkodër-Podgorica highway through the Hani i Hotit crossing point, as well as when going in the direction of Ulcinj by the Muriqan crossing point.

Officially there is no rabies in Albania where you can come across, however, many stray dogs sometimes in packs. Even if these animals are not systematically aggressive, you should be careful and take every precaution before arriving in the country, where there is no anti-rabies vaccine to be found.
Cases of viral hepatitis are frequent. You should never drink tap water. Gastro-enteritis is particularly rife in summer.
Long and very frequent power and water cuts, in winter and in summer, cause considerable inconvenience, especially in terms of hygiene, and make it necessary to take extra care with food.
Vaccination against yellow fever is required for persons coming from affected areas (certain countries in Africa and South America). For further information, you can consult the website of the Committee for medical information (CIMED). Other recommended vaccinations are: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis, tetanus and typhoid.
Popular desserts are: oshaf, with figs and ewe's milk; cakes soaked in honey and glacé fruits or reçel. Holiday dishes are often presented with a stuffed sheep's head. The favorite dish in the south is kukurec (stuffed sheep's intestines). Western breakfasts are served in hotels, but the Albanian breakfast of pilaf (rice) or paça (tripe soup) is not to everyone's taste.
