What to do in May 2018 in Tirana

Welcome to the perfect time for visiting Tirana. May is the best month to enjoy the city, for its wonderful weather. It looks like real summer. All the tourists prefer this month to visit Tirana, and if you wander in the streets of Tirana, you will feel like you are in a foreign city.  This is the liveliest month even regarding the activities in open space, since they can gather the highest number of participants. That is because starting from June and two other months of the summer, Tirana is quieter since every one run to the beach. It is also the last month of school for the elementary and high school.

The first day of May is a Public Holiday. It is the Labour Day, but it is a tradition now in Albania that it is considered just a day off for workers, in comparison with other countries where this day is a Day of Protesters.  For this day we recommend to all unemployed people to visit the Fair “Destination-Work” , to see the new possibilities to find a job.
