Albania: “Albanosphere”

Douglas Muir of A Fistful of Euros posts a new installment on the “Greater Albania” – an extensive overview of the myths and facts about the “Albanosphere.”


  • Muir is mistaken.

    About 20% of Albanians are Orthodox Chrsitian with about 10% being Catholic.

    Among Albanians, Greater Albania is a greater reality than the once hyped Greater Serbia theme among Serbs.

    Greater albania have no sens its a propoganda.serbia wanted to be greater with foreigners territories and populations…But albanians wants natural albania/ethnique with albanian territories and albanian population…But even thats wold happend after the albanian ethnic cleansing by serbs and greeks we cant realise like it was …

  • Albanian

    No Mike “Greater Albania” is not that popular. It’s more on the “It would be nice but…” and that’s about it. No poll shows any great desire to unite, other than in EU, but it serves Serbs and Greeks well as a propaganda tool.

    The stats on religion are nonsense anyway, they predate WWII and most people are not religious and only identify with what their grandfathers did.
