Tirana in July is less populated during the daylight hours due to the high temperatures and because many people are heading to coastal cities. But that does not mean that Tirana isn’t lively. In the late afternoon and in the evenings, Tirana has a fantastic atmosphere, the "Skanderbeg" square is crowded with families, young people riding a bike & kids playing.
The Artificial Lake Park is another destination for the long summer nights, where people can enjoy the cinema under the stars. The movie starts every night at 21.00, but you have to be there 1 hour before.
The evenings are full of emotions and excitement at "Skënderbej" square and around other parks.
The first week of July is dedicated to Turkish Culture. Concerts, exhibitions, movies and workshops will be organized from June 29th to July 7th.

To beat the summer heat you can escape to the swimming pools of Tirana, Our favorite is Swimming Pool Tagani, for its clean waters, security, and the surrounding greenery.
If you love hiking, then you will probably love the Canyons of Erzeni and the Eye of the Cyclops to swim in the turquoise waters.
Enjoy your stay in Tirana!
