Visit Tirana, The modern Capital of 1001 opportunities.

The little town of Kruje with such a long history and pride for the Albanians, related to the story of the legendary hero, Scanderbeg. The highlight of the visit is the local cuisine. There is a local saying "Lick the fingers". Do as the locals do.
