!!Kush është Jezusi? --- About Albania --- Other Resources

Albania is constitutionally a secular country, and as such, "neutral in questions of belief and conscience". The most common religions practiced in Albania are Islam and Christianity. Religious observance and practice is generally lax and polls have shown that, compared to other countries, fewer Albanians consider religion to be a dominant factor in their lives.

In the 20th century, the power of Muslim, Catholic and Orthodox clergy was weakened during the monarchy years and eradicated during the 1940s and 1950s, under the state policy of obliterating all organized religion from Albanian territories. Albania today is often referred to as the least religious country on earth.

The Constitution extends freedom of religion to all citizens and the government generally respects this right in practice.

Many of the citizens of Albania speak French, Italian, Greek, and English in addition to their native language. A poll shows that 65% of the young people speak some English and it is the preferred language they want to learn.

There are 2.8 million citizens in Albania. It is a prosperous country and a popular tourist destination.
