The heart of Albania in a day

Dear Ladies & Gentleman!
Let's visit one of the most vivid cities of the Balkans. Let us discover Tirana, The modern Capital of 1001 opportunities. Once a small settlement, whose Founder wanted to compare with the center of Persia, Tehran. Later an important station along some ancient routes started to grow up and expanded more and more in different periods of time.

Plenty of things to visit and see in the city, including a visit of the Check Point Block (Blloku), Bunk-Art museum, The Martyrs Avenue, Scanderbeg Square and one of the oldest mosque in the town, the Et-hem Beg Mosque. We will enjoy the combination of history and legends of the city under the bright colors all around. During the shopping time it happens often to buy a T-shirt from the" United Colors of Benetton". Have you ever heard about "The United Colors of Tirana"? To be explored during the tour….
