As our group was in Albania to view rare flowers and animals, our Albanian guide brought us to a large park with a Botanic Garden but I know neither the location nor the name of this park. The entrance was a classical green park with large flower-beds but the second part was the botanical garden (next tip).
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.
I liked Tirana by night and took this photograph. When I think of Tirana, I do miss day and night view of Et'hem Bey Mosque and Clock Tower.
A lot of paths run around the lake and jogging and bycicle are some of the most practiced activities... be careful at evening , its crowded by mosquitos !!
