Tirana the capital
We will start your discovery of Albania with a visit of the capital !
A city since 1614 and the capital of Albania since 1920, Tirana is the country’s main cultural hub. You will be able to discover a city famous for the colourful facades of its buildings and the harmony between the various religions in the country.
The visit of the National Museum located on Skanderbeg Square will be a nice introduction to the rich Albanian history!
Close to this square, we will be able to see the mosque « Et’hem Bey », which has been preserved even during the communist era for its historical value, the opera, the clock tower and the palace of culture. We will then discover the superb Orthodox Cathedral as well as the Catholic Cathedral.
You will also see the pyramid (the Museum of the former dictator, Enver Hoxha) and, weather permitting, you will be able to take a walk in the park of the Artificial Lake of Tirana.
In the evening, we recommend you to enjoy the nightlife of the capital in the district of Blok: Once reserved to the communist nomenclature is now a trendy neighborhood and the place where you can have a drink or find a nice restaurant to relax after your day.
