Safe parking in Tirana

by Vanity666

Could someone recommend me some safe place to leave my car? We're planning to spend half a day in Tirana, and would like to leave the car somewhere safe, and as close to city center as possible.
Is there some shoping mall where I could leave it, or some safer parking spot?

Thank you.

Re: Safe parking in Tirana

I remember passing by a guarded parking lot in Tirana... What a strange thing to remember... :) I was walking down boulevard Deshmoret e Kombit from Skanderbeg Square, and turned left at a sign for the Tirana Castle. The parking lot was located on the right a few blocks down the street. However, I never used the parking lot myself so don't know how reliable it is.

I also found some info here: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?threadID=1907999

Hi,
I am living in Tirana since April 2010, the city is pretty sure, there are no problems for cars, unless you leave it packed of stuff during the night, I guess. In the city centre I know a guarded place for few euros per night. I will check the address and inform you on this,
I use it when going to the centre, not for security concerns but because it is rather difficult to find parking spots,

I would be really happy if you could inform me of this place. Thank you :)

Re: Safe parking in Tirana

Sorry for the delay.

You are in Blvd Deshmoret e Kombit (coming from Blvd Bairam Curri along the river that cuts Tirane)

You turn right in Rruga Ismail Qemali

The protected parking space is on your right side around 30 meters before the crossing with Rruga Ded Gjo Luli

On Google Earth or on
www.maplandia.com/albania/tirane/tirana/

you can see it just below Kisha Apostolike e Re (a church I guess)

hope you will find it

So, this parking is in Rruga Ismail Qemali?

I'm asking because I'll put the address in my GPS then.

Thank you :)

Yes, Rruga Ismail Qemali, correct (just before it becomes for pedestrians only)

Travel Tips for Tirana

New source of Tirana Information

by Globetrotter1028

Check out the newest (as of August 08) guidebook to Tirana -- the first one ever published by Thomas Cook Publishing on Albania. It was written by Tim Clancy, an explorer, author and expert on the Balkans. He received some special on-the-ground behind-the-scenes assistance from a Tirana-based US Agency for International Development economic development project. The local team with that project provided Tim with some special tips on sites and attractions, so the results are really interesting for travelers. Definitely worth taking this book with you to Tirana.

You can order it from:

Tirana, state owned car, 1988

by JLBG

As I have written, in 1988, no private citizens could own a car. Thus motor vehicles were mainly busses and trucks. Cars were very few and I have read that in 1988, there were less than a thousand cars in the whole country. These cars were then state owned and were either for the rulers of the country or for state officers on duty, including the army. This one looks more like a military car.

Durres

by antistar

About an hour from Tirana by bus or train is the ancient city of Durres. It's worth the trip to sea the Adriatic coast, the Roman amphitheater, and King Zog's palace. It's only about 50 cents for a return ticket on the train, and the train journey is an experience in itself.

Bye Tirana

by DPando

This is one of my last sights from Tirana.. i guess that i wont come back .. nothing special live there and not much attractions push me to come there one more time... maybe the ionian coast at the southern end of the country would be worth to visit
