Situated in the demographic heart of Albania, Tirana is a frenetic capital city that seeks to open itself to the world. This little-known Mediterranean city will surprise you with its still visible communist history and colourful architecture. Tirana is a very lively city, with museums, bars, restaurants, parks and shops to discover.
You can visit Skanderbeg Square, named after the imposing equestrian statue of a local hero, take a cable car ride up Mount Dajti, admire the exceptional collection of the Albanian National Library or take a walk in the alleys of the city's parks and along the banks of the lake.
In the vicinity of Tirana, you can visit the village of Kruja or the towns of Berat and Gjirokastra, which are classified as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO for their Ottoman heritage.
