Albania has almost 300 sunny days in a year. But what to do for the rest, let’s say for 65 other days? In Tirana rainy and grim days are perfect to hide somewhere, meanwhile you may find plenty things to do.
Skanderbeg square this time of the year is very inviting. The municipality decide to put the Christmas tree and lights earlier this year. The square is very beautiful and now is filled with wooden houses that are turned into souvenir shops, bars where you can drink a beer and enjoy some Albanian meatballs.
If you are a lover of art and culture you may choose to go in some galleries. These days are open two interesting exhibitions in Tirana galleries one at National Art Gallery and Kalo Gallery, both are opened all the day. Or Go to museums, which are also all open.
Shopping is another good option. Some trade center are situated outside but also in the Center of Tirana. So you can reach each of them easily, by car (TEG, QTU, City Park, Casa Italia) or walking (Toptani, Coin, Kristal Center, Concord Center etc)
Some people prefer to spend grey and grimy days at home, reading. In fact there are some bookstores or special bars, offering the best books. So you can enjoy a coffee while reading.
It never gets boring in Tirana. We love our city in every season.
Hope you do, too! Have a relaxing rainy day
