What to do in December 2020 in Tirana

Tirana is shining in December. The Christmas lights are lighten up everywhere in squares, shops, streets. The atmosphere is fantastic and people are staying outside enjoying the festive season. Children are the happiest in this period. They love the lights, the Christmas tree, but the most of all they love the gifts and presents from parents, from different festive activities involving Santa Claus etc

What is the best thing to do in December 2020 in Tirana?

Well this is an unusual year, due to pandemic, and the gathering for more than 10 people are banned. So citizens are encouraged to stay mostly home, or to strictly respect social distance where they go outside or in other places.

The Municipality will not organize concerts, activities or fairs in Skanderbeg Square. People will miss this year the Christmas market, the hot coffee and chocolates in the square, the bars and children playgrounds. The main square will be quieter this year, even though people tend to make photos close to the biggest Christmas tree or in other festive installation.

Best things to do

Walking amid lights: The best thing to do is to walk in the lightening streets of the city. The most beautiful areas are: Skanderbeg Square, Pedestrian Street Toptani, Myslym Shyri Streets, Blloku Area, etc

Shopping: Shopping malls such as Toptani, Teg, QTU, CityPark, Megatek etc are beautifully decorated and offering good sales during the Festive Season. Also they are organizing some entertaining shows, giving presents, organizing competitions etc. The best presents are souvenirs, books, toys for kids, clothes, wines etc

Cooking

Cooking is the most preferred thing to do during this season. It is cold outside, so let’s enjoy the warm inside, trying to cook some delicious meals for the family. Also enjoying a cup of chocolate close to the fireplace, reading, or watching a movie. Don’t forget to cook something more for your neighbour in need of for other vulnerable people you know

Helping

This is the best time of the year to look at others. You are buying many festive things, spending for decorations, for presents, while there are many people outside suffering, or are alone. You can help donating clothes, food, toys for kids, blankets etc. Do something that everyone can enjoy this festive season.

Happy Christmas and New Year!

What to do in August 2020 in TIRANA

Tirana is coping with COVID19, and as experts say we are already in the second wave of the pandemic.  The city is living with the disease and all people are going normally to work and living their life. The masks are obligatory in indoor business activities and institutions, but people are wearing them even in open spaces. The number of deaths is increasing and the situation is totally unclear. See the updates every day of the Covid situation in Albania here: shendetesia.gov.al

tours to  Tirana

Tourism is almost halted, but people in Tirana are finding ways to go for small holidays, mostly during weekends outside the city, in villages, or for some days in Albanian beaches. No one can travel outside Albania, the borders remained closed.

What you can do in Tirana

During August we suggest you to stay away from crowded places, and to choose to travel outside the city in nature, in villages, in mountains around Tirana. It is better than going to the beach, which is so close to Tirana. There is a strong relation between green places full with oxygen and low numbers of infected people by COVID. So what we suggest is be part of nature as much as you can, stay in open spaces not indoors. You can do hiking, climbing or picnics, entertain your kids with sports and open air activities. Here are some places where you can go in weekend while you are in Tirana in August outside Tirana . tours to  Tirana

 If you want organized daily tours around Tirana, here are some of them, which we can arrange for you: Daytrips in Tirana

Where to eat

Please avoid indoor restaurants with air conditioner and choose instead restaurants in open spaces in nature. Read before the reviews for each restaurant or guest house, especially regarding about their cleanness and hygiene. Good restaurants and hotels have mentioned their anti-covid measures in their website. Before you stop somewhere, you should see their website, how updated they are, how much they care for the guests etc. You can stop everywhere and possible be infected. There are very responsible businesses and from the other hand there are businesses behaving that nothing is happening. Take care about your health. We suggest more that this period you should eat your own food, organize picnics in nature, or in small parks. Our motto is: Eat Homemade Food during pandemic!

Cultural Activities

The cultural life in Tirana has started, with some activities in open spaces such as Reja installation, and Tirana Amphitheatre and Skanderbeg Square.

We have plenty of tours organizing every weekend and you can book with Visit Tirana, such as visit at Shengjergj, Bovilla Lake, Cyclop Eye, Kakunja Waterfall. See all day trips tours here: http://www.visit-tirana.com/explore-tirana/tours-to-tirana/daytrips-in-tirana

The sea is so close to Tirana, just 30 minutes in Durres, or in other areas such as Divjaka, Spille etc 1 hour far from Tirana. Especially during weekends people go out of the city and turn back on Sunday evening to start on Monday their work. There are several interurban buses to and from Durres every day.

When you go out of Tirana you will find several swimming pools, mostly of them in old Tirana Elbasan Road. The prices varies from 500-1000 ALL per person. It is good to spend a day close to Tirana in swimming pools, all of them have bars and restaurants.

Bike tours are also very popular, you can rent a bike for 24 hours and enjoy the surrounding of Tirana, especially the villages, such as Baldushk, Petrela, Vaqar, Kashar etc. You can do hiking in Dajti Mount, or to go to Adventure Park in Dajti.

In the afternoon, Skandberg Square is the most populated area, where people can sit everywhere, bike or skate in the square. Or go for a walk to the lake. The open bars are full everywhere in  Tirana, which is the most popular activity in the city. People stay in late hours, talking, drinking or dining with each other. In summer afternoons Tirana looks very crowded. People turn from their daily works, or daily tours and the afternoon the city is full of people

Parku Rinia reopens for Children's Day

On 1 June 2020, youth park, Rinia Park in Tirana is reopened after one year, due to restoration.

Parku Rinia in Tirana

Rinia park is situated close to the city center and the new concept is to turn it in a park for all ages, especially for children, but to reduce somehow the noise since this park is in the most popular place in Albania. The traffic around the park is always busy since it is surrounded by main boulevard, Ministries, Tajvani area, Myslym Shyri and Ibrahim Rugova streets. So there are created many green dunes to balance the acoustics and people can relax undisturbed by the cars in the main roads. There are separated places for old people, for children for cultural activities, such as small concerts and circus, and a dedicated place for dogs.

Parku Rinia in Tirana

 In the main entrance of the park you can see the Monument of Independence inaugurated for 100th anniversary of Albanian Independence in 2012.

 The other entrance is from Tajvani complex where you can see a bike stop, and the beautiful fountain, enjoy a coffee while kids are playing.
