Travel Tips for Tirana

a city's reneissance

by call_me_rhia

Tirana, Albania's capital - is a city that is being reborn and growing. Parts of the city are now being revamped, roads are repaved and pavements are repaired. Some buildings are also being totally reconstructed. All is RE-something, in Tirana.

The city is not exactly beautiful, though it has its beaty spots and attractions/monuments - but it's a city that is changing - fast. The new mayor has planned for a complete city's face-lift and you can see it happening. The very modern living side-by-side with the very old and crumbling down. Both are equally fascinating as they show you the scars of Hoxha totalitarism and the enlightment of the new government which is really happening - although western medias might not tell you, yet.

The central part is getting remodernized and there's even a revolving glass restaurant on top of a tall building, and there are the onmipresent Twin Towers here, too. Old Tirana, however, is only a few backstreets away. For now - but not for long.

Tirana, ice-cream booth

by JLBG

Though we were at the beginning of May, I noticed that there were everywhere small booth or small carriages that sold ice creams. One must remember that in former Yugoslavia, Montenegrin were well known for their ice creams, all over the country. Montenegro is the first neighbor, north to Albania and it seems that Albanians have the same skill. As ice creams are not my cup of tea, I cannot tell how they taste.

Tirana, 1988, traditional clothing

by JLBG

These photos were taken at the end of the 1988 May 1st parade.

The first photo shows a couple traditional clothes from Northern Albania (Gheg dialect).

The second photo shows male traditional clothes from Northern Albania (Gheg dialect).

The third photo shows female traditional clothes from the south (Tosk dialect), but I cannot tell of which region.

The fourth photo shows slightly different clothes, most probably from a neighbouring district to the previous.

The fifth is not really a traditional clothing. Before 1991, Romas were strongly discriminated. Cleaning the streets was one of the few jobs they could pretend. This was the garment they had to wear when they swept the streets.

Dajti mountain - 20 min away from the capital

by skinz

Dajti mountin is just 20 min by car from Tirana city. As you can see from the picture you can have a fantastic view of Tirana from there. During the winter, from december to february it is all covererd with snow.. you may do hiking, walk up to the top of the mountain or visit some of the caves there.

Italian and french cuisine

by skinz

One of the things that has visibily improved during the past 10 years is the quality of the restaurants. You can find many good places at the center, main food is Italian, French and Albania. There are two chinese restaurants as well and one mexican. You may chechk Berlin, Primavera, Tavernetta around the Bllok area, but my favourite is Era - mostly good local food and meals less than 7-8 eur.
