Spring has sprung in Tirana! We invite you to enjoy the blossom of this lovely month in the liveliest capital Tirana. Come and celebrate with Albanians the arrival of Spring on March 14, admire the long walks amid blooming trees in Kavaja Street, be amused by historical attractions, take part on cultural events.
There are plenty things to do in March in Tirana. The sunny days are ahead. Albanians celebrate 4 special days on March: 7 March -Teacher’s Day, 8 March- Mother’s Day, 14 March “Summer Day” and 22 March “Nowruz Day”.
There will be some great events in Tirana during the Diaspora Summit days from 28 February -2 March, such as Artisans Fair at New Bazaar, Folk Music of Tirana Ensemble at Tirana Castle etc. See more here, and dont loose them.
7-8 March have always been seen as festive days, but this year there are planned some protests and awarenes activities. We suggest you to watch the Women International Festival from 8-11 March.
There are many other festivals and concerts during the March. Albanian-born singer Ermal Meta returns to Tirana for a concert to the Palace of Congresses in Tirana, on 4th of March. There are other cultural events during the month.
In 14th March we celebrate the Summer Day. It is a unique festival for Albania. It was a festive tradition which was isolated only in Elbasan area (see the story here), but the last decade it has been spread all over the country. Now 14th March is a public holiday for all Albanians and is a day when we celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring. It is funny that we call it ‘Summer Day” and not Spring Day, since the warm days starts very soon in our country, which have 300 sunny days per year.
14 March is a perfect day to be in Tirana and to get a feeling of Albanian festive traditions, to make new friends and know more about our culinary, our costumes etc.
