Tirana in Albania

The capital city of Albania, Tirana, emerged from an austere form of communism after many years, and as a result is relatively unspoilt by tourism, and small enough to easily walk around. English is widely spoken, the people are very welcoming and there is a refreshing lack of commercialism. There are also some great ancient historical sights nearby, and a feeling that you are catching one of the last glimpses of how Europe must have been a hundred years ago.

Best of Tirana's events

Tirana has hot dry summers, cool wet winters with some snow, so the best time for a trip is between April and October, thereby avoiding the hot summer months of July and August. Try June for a beach holiday on the nearby Adriatic coast as it's empty of crowds then, and August is good for visiting the mountains. Visit the Tirana Film Festival at the beginning of December, or the Tirana International Jazz Festival, which is usually in July. Albania celebrates an orthodox Easter, and the date is sometime in March/April, usually between 0 to 5 weeks after the Northern European Easter.
