The period also saw the publication of promotional pamphlets, and the construction of some beach cabins by Italian engineers in Durres. At the start of communism, foreign tourists only came from Eastern Europe, and were accommodated at the foreigners only Adriatik Hotel in Durres. Gradually other hotels were constructed nearby from Soviet engineers to accommodate the local working masses and the country's elite. The latter rested at heavily guarded secluded areas mainly in Golem Beach south of Durres, Drilon Swans Park east of Pogradec, some alpine village areas, and along the Albanian Riviera. Additionally, several youth camps were established and a tourist boat constructed called Punetori (the Worker). The population used heavily rail transport as private car ownership was forbidden by law. Following the Sino-Soviet Split, the regime encouraged Chinese (China) tourists to visit Albania. It was only in the 1980s that Western tourists were permitted to visit as part of Marxist-Leninist organizations. They mainly visited historic sites. Upon arrival, some of them underwent shaving by authorities. In fact, beards and long hair in men were banned in Albania as signs of degenerated bourgeoisie manners http: www.telegraph.co.uk travel destinations europe albania 7867628 Regent-Holidays-celebrates-40-years-in-Eastern-Europe.html . Since the fall of communism, visiting restrictions greatly eased while the tourism sector experienced a spontaneous construction spree. The 1997 unrest (1997 unrest in Albania) was a major blow for tourism and contributed to the negative image of Albania as a lawless and unsafe country. In the 2000s, it is worth noting the reconstruction of important roadways, the continuation of illegal spontaneous construction in some popular areas, and the rediscovery of forgotten parts by domestic tourists and businessmen. A significant watershed moment was the publication of several promotional videos on major global news channels http: www.youtube.com watch?v CB-Z6AlT1AQ&NR 1 and the writing of promotional articles in important international newspapers. http: www.mtkrs.gov.al web Media_e_Huaj_mbi_Turizmin_Shqiptar_633_1.php In 2010, tourism in Albania had the greatest increase in the world with a 42% growth.

It employed the best artisans in the country and was completed in 1821 by Molla's son, who was also Sulejman Pasha's grandnephew. In 1800, the first newcomers arrived in the settlement (Human settlement), the so-called ''ortodoksit''. They were Vlachs from villages of Korçë and Pogradec who settled around the area of today's Park on the Artificial Lake (Tirana Park on the Artificial Lake). Commons:Category:Pogradec

There are three cities on the lake's shores: Ohrid and Struga on the Macedonian side; Pogradec in Albania. There are also several fishing villages, although tourism is now a more significant part of their income. The catchment area of the lake has a population of around 170,000 people, with 131,000 people living directly at the lake shore (43,000 in Albania and 88,000 in Macedonia). The population in the catchment has increased greatly by 100,000 people in the last half century

, putting the lake's fragile ecosystem under pressure. The historic monuments, as well as the pristine lake environment make the area around Lake Ohrid a prime site for tourism.

During the Yugoslav (Yugoslavia) crisis and particularly after the interethnic conflicts within Macedonia in 2001 international tourism collapsed but has been slowly recovering during
