Fly from Liverpool to Tirana
Why you should go
Albania’s cultural, economic and entertainment centre, Tirana is a colourful city with painted facades, murals and an abundance of street art that is a treat for the eyes.
It is a city that is rough around the edges, but takes that in its stride, with plenty to see and do for those who love to explore.
When you should go
Tirana is a destination that can be enjoyed at any time of year, but the spring, summer and autumn seasons remain warm, giving you the opportunity to not only discover the city when the weather’s nice, but also escape to the nearby beaches.
Bunk’art: Albania has over 173,000 bunkers that were constructed during the Cold War, and some built in Tirana have been converted into art installations. In addition to the art, you can also learn about Albania’s communist past and the era in which these concrete structures were built.
Skanderbeg Square: Skanderbeg Square is the beating heart of Tirana and alongside regular cultural events that take place here, you’ll find the National History Museum of Albania, Et’hem Bey Mosque and the Clock Tower of Tirana - three of the city’s top attractions.
Krujë: Located an hour north of Tirana at the base of a mountain of the same name, the town of Krujë is the perfect day trip location from the Albanian capital. Here you’ll find a bazaar where you can shop for souvenirs, a castle with an observation deck and exhibitions detailing local history and many restaurants at which you can sample the delights of Albanian cuisine.
