Tirana is an open-air art gallery. The city has a lot to offer : take the time to walk around, you’ll be amazed! The houses have been painted in bright colours and a promenade is a must to admire these incredible works of art which are now an integral part of the city’s identity. An explosion of colour that takes you a thousand miles away from your everyday life. You’re guaranteed to fall in love!
Our hotel is perfectly located, less than 5 minutes walk from Skanderbeg Square. The heart of the city, the huge Skanderbeg Square, with the bronze equestrian statue of Skanderbeg, the country’s hero, in the centre, is surrounded by emblematic sites such as the Palace of Culture, the Clock Tower, the Et’hem Bey Mosque and the National Historical Museum.
If you want to relax between two cultural visits, go for a walk in the Great Park “Parku i Madh”, a 230 hectare oasis of peace and greenery, with an artificial lake, the public zoo and a botanical garden.
Bars, nightclubs, shops, restaurants, concerts… Blloku is Tirana’s trendy district . Discover this colourful area and admire the Street Art paintings on the buildings and even on the electric transformers, evoking Charlie Chaplin, Dali or Corto Maltese.
East of Tirana, you can discover Mount Dajti Mountain, 1613m high, and its National Park of almost 300 square kilometres, known as the “Natural Balcony of Tirana”. To reach the mountain, take a narrow asphalt road or, more simply, a cable car, the Dajti Ekspres. At the top, you will find a large number of attractions and a breathtaking panoramic view.
Here are some of the must-sees if you want to discover the history of the city: Bunk’Art 1 & 2, former bunkers transformed into a museum, the National Art Gallery, the Palace of Culture, the National History Museum (27,000 square metres, the largest in Albania) and its spectacular mosaic, the Pyramid or the Et’Hem Bey Mosque, that is listed as a cultural monument.
