The capital city of Albania, Tirana will be the starting point for many people exploring the best places in Albania.
The city is home to few must-see tourist locations, but the 18th-century Et’hem Bey mosque is well worth a visit.
Tirana’s people, like the vast majority of Albanian locals, are exceptionally friendly and the city is supremely affordable, with surprisingly excellent food and drinks both very cheap.
Skanderbeg Square is one of Tirana’s most important places and this is where the National Historical Museum can be found too.
At the heart of Skanderbeg Square – and therefore the heart of Tirana – is a statue of the historic Albanian national hero Skanderbeg.
