Tirana is changing every day. New attractions are added to the city during the last two years, so even people who born here, don’t recognize their neighborhoods.
So, if you want to be updated with all these changes, we suggest you to see these places:
We start the tour at Skanderbeg Square. The new square is restored in summer of 2017 and is the main destination for all tourists visiting Tirana. We explain a short history about this square and the buildings around which are: Palace of Culture, National Bank, the Et’hem Bey Mosque, The Clock Tower and National Museum. After taking some picture in the Square, we go to the National Historical Museum to have guidance on the history of Albanians. You can choose to visit the Mosque or Clock Tower. We continue to the Tanners Bridge, across the George Bush Street.
Then we turn back at Pedestrian Street Murat Toptani for a coffee inside Tirana castle and then until we reach the main Boulevard “Deshmoret e Kombit”. We continue to see all the historical places we had in both sides of the Boulevard: Government Buildings, Reja Installation, the Monument of Independence, Rinia Park, the Pyramid- the symbol of communism, then we head to Postbllok Monuments, Palace of Congress and reach Mother Teresa Square.
We turn back for a tour to Blloku area, former isolated area during communist regime. It’s up to you if you want to have a drink or a lunch in this place. There are two more places you may see if you want to know more for communist past of Albanians: the Museum House of Leaves and Bunk’Art Museum, which are also close to the city centre.
