The April starts with festive days in Tirana. It is the most flourishing month in every sense. The Easter weekend falls from 30 March to 2 April. Albanian Christian community is celebrating this day in different ways, but the common thing is going to Church, and then cook the best food for their family, including coloured eggs, which they distribute to their relatives.
If you are in Tirana during the Easter weekend, we suggest you to visit “The Resurrection Cathedral”, or St Paul's Cathedral in Tirana, which are the most populated churches in Tirana so that you can feel the atmosphere of festive Easter Day.
April is starting with perfect weather. The summer comes early in Albania. The first week of April the temperatures are going to be 20 degrees which is a fantastic time to enjoy Tirana. Spring is the perfect time to visit Tirana, and to see as much as you can, starting from cultural destinations, to natural destinations around Tirana, including all surrounding villages.
A Spring Adventure
Walking in the parks, at Lake Park, Rinia, Park or traveling in rural Tirana is the best thing you can do in April. The Dajti Mountain is always the best solution, where you can entertain yourself at the Adventure Park, which is now open after the winter closure.
But Tirana offers much more. Travel to Bovilla Lake, Farka or Kashar, Peza or Shengjergj, Pellumbas or Laknas, Preza or Petrela, Tujan or Mali me Gropa, - all these places offer spectacular nature which is blossoming in April.
