Tirana Holidays

Since emerging from a communist grasp in the early 1990s, Tirana is now lively, pulsing with energy, and quite literally, colorful (with buildings painted in bold, primary colors.) The city's grand boulevards are lined with cafes, bars, and street art, and visitors will love the blend of Asian and Italian culinary creations, as well as a variety of ... Read more

If you are traveling by car to the Albanian Riviera you cant avoid Tirana. I wouldn't say that it was a great place, driving here is crazy and it is very hot and hectic in summer, but the culture of this place is for sure something to experience.

Tirana is one of those cities that I enjoyed more than I thought I would, and one of the main reasons is because of the Albanian people themselves that are very high-spirited and seem to really enjoy life. One of my favorite areas in this the largest city in Albania is called the Blloku Dirstrict an area of approximately fifteen blocks dedicated to cafes, restaurants, and bars. The city's grand central boulevards contain an interesting mix of the Ottoman, Italian and communist past.

The capital city of Albania. There is a bigger array of cuisine and a bountiful nightlife, compared to the rest of the country. I like to refer to it as a mini NYC because of the traffic, noise and amount of people.

A fascinating mix of faded communism and burgeoning modernism. Tirana is a charming city with excellent restaurants, friendly people, and just the right mix of modern sophistication and old world charm. Unfairly branded as crime ridden and poverty stricken, Tirana is an unexpected surprise.

I fell in love with Tirana, there's no other way to put it. By most Western travelers' standards, it could be said that Tirana is a dirty and ugly city, but there's something I found quite fascinating about this huge city (a much bigger city than I had anticipated), the energy, the vibrancy and, yes, the chaos you feel, simply walking its crowded streets and old markets, perhaps, or the extraordinarily friendliness of its people. Plenty of modern, high-end yet inexpensive restaurants in its swankier areas (namely, the Blloku district), a boatload of small, unique museums, Tirana has many of the attractions that attract the "regular" Western tourists, but what does it for me is its one-of-a-kind chaotic charm. It's definitely not everyone's cup of tea sort of city but I absolutely loved it!

One of the ugliest places I have even been. I also got food poisoning. Stay away unless there have been marked improvements since 2000. (Dont forget this was the last country of the former Eastern block to fall.
