Starting from Durres.

Let's get a full view of Tirana.

Foundations from Justinian era, few Ottoman buildings, a typically Fascist boulevard, beautiful Italian architecture, Communist monuments and massive buildings from Socialist era. Besides all this a important crossroad and meeting-point of different cultures and religions!

Here in Albania we like to show proudly the peaceful way different religions live here side by side. A colorful Mosque, a modern Catholic Cathedral and a impressive Orthodox Church, all to be visited in few minutes.

The National Museum of History, Gallery of Arts, Archaeology Museum! You can decide what do you like to visit!

It's worth a walk around on the chaotic streets to see the interesting buildings, but also to get a closer view what the peoples do during the day! The relaxing bars invite us for "the best cappuccino you have ever tried"!

That's our tour in Tirana, there's plenty to explore .
