No, not Venice, it’s Shkodër in Albania, where locals have been holding their traditional masked carnival! 👺💃Fun fact: some of the most beautiful, handcrafted Venetian masks are produced right here in Shkodër at the Art Mask Factory.Founded by Edmond Angoni, a local who lived in Italy, the workshop employs 260 people to manually make 30,000 masks per year using the cartapesta technique. The works are exquisite, ranging from simple models covering just the eyes to extravagant full-face masks exported worldwide. The artisans here even created the masks for Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes Wide Shut. Albania is a country full of surprises, just waiting for you to explore! Combine Venetian mask-making in Shkodër with SUP-boarding on the lake, wild swimming, hiking in the mountains and more on our new North Albania activity holiday.

With lent beginning this week, it's a great time to talk vegan travel in the Balkans. Because actually, it's not as hard as you'd think despite the big love for meat and dairy in the traditional cuisine.More and more of our guests are vegan, or prefer to eat more plant-based foods, and it’s easy for us to cater for them. Due to regular fasting periods like lent, there's even a food label called 'posno' to show which foods are non-dairy in the supermarkets.If you’re visiting ex-Yugoslavian countries like Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro, here are some of our favourite vegan dishes to ask for:🍳 Prebranac (preybranats) – Balkan baked beans🍳 Sataraš (satarash) – Balkan ratatouille🍳 Djuvec (dewvech) – a vegetable rice dish🍳 Pasulj (pasulyah) – bean stew🍳 Pita sa tivicama (peeta sa teekveetsama) - filo pastry stuffed with butternut squashOur vegan 2023 guest Daniella gave five stars to our Lake Skadar holiday in Montenegro and had the following to say about the food: 😋“We had told Ben that we are both Vegan before we arrived. I was a bit concerned about this before we arrived as I’m aware that Montenegro is not a vegan friendly country, however we were very pleasantly surprised. Ben made us plenty of delicious vegan dishes on the welcome dinner - the homemade black mulberry icecream was excellent! All of the lunches that were included were also able to cater to us and we ate very well all in all. Lunch at Tanja’s (a local lady and friend of Ben and Emma) was a highlight as she made so many delicious vegan dishes for us to indulge in, most of them from vegetables and fruits grown in her garden. Ben and Emma even sourced some vegan birthday cake on my Husbands birthday!”We get the best guests! Come try us out, and we’ll open your eyes to some amazing Balkan plant-based cuisine. 😄 Full info & booking at 👉 www.undiscoveredbalkans.com#undiscoveredbalkans #veganholidays ... See MoreSee Less
