The coldest month of the year is here. January 2020 starts with very low temperatures in Tirana and all over Albania. It is expected to have some snow in Tirana during this month. But, for sure there will be snow in Dajti Mountain in January. So, you can find a moment to have a ride with Cable Car and to experience a fantastic adventure to the nearest mount of Tirana. It will take only 20 minutes and you will find yourself in the place you want to be..
Tirana is a very quiet city this month. There are smaller crowds in the streets, therefore walking is a good choice.
In this month people usually enjoy having a hot coffee, chocolate or any hot drink, and of course a good lunch or dinner in a very warm place, possibly closer to the fireplace. The bars and restaurants as always are fully booked.
For those who want to experience more from Tirana here are some festive days and events
In 6th of January, the Epiphany day is celebrated by Orthodox and Catholic believers. It is mostly celebrated in south of Albania where a wooden cross is thrown by a priest into the sea, river or lake and young men race to retrieve it. According to the rite, the first man who gets the cross is blessed and will have a vintage year. While many Orthodox Christians annually celebrate Christmas day on January 7 to remember Jesus Christ’s birth, described in the Christian Bible. This date works to the Julian calendar.
For those who love theater “Boeing Boeing” comedy would be the perfect choice or the Russian satiric comedy “The Auditor”. Kids are not left behind either with adorable shows such as “Tickets to the north pole”.
For all of those addicted to art, The National Historical Museum besides historical pavilions, has opened exhibitions, almost every week. But the tickets’ price has changed.
