Tirana

Tirana
Fly with Austrian to Tirana, Albania’s capital and a city that is in rapid transition from a gruesome history during the communist era to an open and fun place in southern Europe. Tirana is not known for famous landmarks, but still has some places worth a visit. Central to all things Albanian is the Skanderbeg Square, where a statue of the Albanian national hero, who fought successfully against the Ottoman conquerors in the 15th century. In the National Museum, you can see the mighty broadsword of the hero and many other artefacts of the Albanian history. The Et’hem Bey mosque from the 18th century is one of the few that survived communism intact and is a beautiful jewel of Muslim architecture.

What Tirana is famous for is the mild climate and the very friendly people. Albanians are a pragmatic and tolerant lot, they are curious about their visitors and they certainly like their coffee. In the many cafés of Tirana you will see the people talking, laughing and enjoying being seen by everyone else. Tirana’s nightlife happens primarily in the Blloku quarter that once was a high security area reserved for the leaders of the communist party. It is somehow fitting that today people come here to have a great time and dance the night away.
