Tirana

 

Tirana, located in the central part of the country, is the capital and largest city of Albania.

Travelers frequently find Tirana to be a strange but appealing mix of old and new – eg, in its jumbled architecture that includes everything from charming historical buildings to communist-era monstrosities that refuse to die.

The city is also known for its lively nightlife, with the main focus being “The Block” (Blloku) — an area where communist leaders used to live under strict protection but now is known for its cafes and parks.

A popular retreat is by cable car to Mount Dajt, with a panoramic view of the city.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
