What to do in January in Tirana

January, as a first month of the year, comes full of energy and life for people living in Tirana city. It is cold but this doesn’t mean that you can’t go out to enjoy the nature and the activities planned in Tirana for this month. The good thing is that in the streets are smaller crowds, so walking is a good choice to enjoy the city. The city remains decorated until the mid of January, so you can still feel some sparkles of the past Christmas period.

Very close to Tirana is Mount Dajti, so you can go there to find some snow. It snows rarely in the city, so if you like to play with snow balls, take the cable car, and for 30 minutes you find yourself in the place you want. Dajti has also some restaurants and good bars, so you can enjoy a wonderful weekend there.
