TIRANA

We arrived very late to Tirana city centre, it was not easy to find the parking, but friendly local bus company let us park in their parking next to the lake. We took short walk to the city centre and jumped into little kebab store just at Skanderbeg Square to taste local street food. Lively, colourful Tirana is where this tiny nation’s hopes and dreams coalesce into a vibrant whirl of traffic, brash consumerism and unfettered fun. Having undergone a transformation of extraordinary proportions since awaking from its communist slumber in the early 1990s, Tirana’s centre is now unrecognisable from those grey days, with buildings painted in primary colours, and public squares and pedestrianised streets that are a pleasure to wander. We enjoyed city life for two days and on the way out we stopped below Mount Dajti, where we took 15 minutes cable car ride to the summit to get nice view at Tirana City.
