Tirana, Albania

Book a ticket to Tirana, the capital of Albania. In this undiscovered gem, the Adriatic Sea and hilly areas form the setting for your holiday.

Tirana is located in central Albania and still undiscovered by most. And that’s a pity because the city has so much to offer! From enjoying culture to relaxing on the beach and mountain climbing, Tirana has it all. Most of the city’s sights are located around Skanderbeg Square, the most important of which are the clock tower, National History Museum and Et’hem Bey mosque. Enough of interest to fill an entire day! 

Area around Tirana

In addition to all the museums and historic sights, the area around Tirana is also worth exploring. The Dajti Mountain National Park is located east of the city. Don’t forget to take your hiking shoes! Here you can climb as high as 1612 metres. Don’t feel like walking? Take the Dajti Express funicular to the top. If you have any time left to explore the area, the beautiful beaches along the coast are highly recommended!
