What will you visit?
Tirana is a mix of old and new. A busy metropolis where tradition collides with modernity.
Our tour starts at Skanderbeg Square, the main plaza named after Albania’s hero. Nearby are important places like the Clock Tower, Et’hem Bey Mosque, and the National History Museum.
The Clock Tower is from 1822 and has 90 steps you can climb for a nice view. The Et’hem Bey Mosque has old pretty paintings.
Built in the early 19th century, this mosque is not only a place of worship but also a symbol of cultural and architectural significance.
One of the fascinating features of the Et’hem Bey Mosque is its old paintings that adorn the interior walls. These paintings, created centuries ago, showcase intricate designs and vibrant colors that tell stories from the past.
We’ll visit Pazari i Ri (New Bazaar), a lively market with many things to see, do and taste.
During the tour, you’ll see the Saint Paul Catholic Cathedral, the Pyramid of Tirana, and “Blloku,”.
During communism, only the communist elite lived in “Blloku”. You can still find the communist leader’s former residence. However, today the area is known for its vibrant nightlife.
We’ll end at Mother Tereza Square with universities and museums before visiting the National Gallery of Arts and the Resurrection of Christ Cathedral.
