Gjirokastra Tirana 4h 20 min
A city since 1614 and the capital of Albania since 1920, Tirana is the country's main cultural hub. It is a city famous for the colorful facades of its buildings and the harmony between the various religions in the country.
The visit of the National Museum located near the Skanderbeg Square will be a nice introduction to the rich Albanian history!
Close to this square, we will be able to see the mosque "Et'hem Bey", which has been preserved even during the communist era for its historical value, the opera, the clock tower and the palace of culture. We discover then the superb Orthodox Cathedral as well as the Catholic Cathedral.
In the end, we visit also the pyramid (the Museum of the former dictator, Enver Hoxha) and, weather permitting; we take a walk in the park of the Artificial Lake of Tirana.
- The museum, the mosque, the cathedrals.
Overnight stay in Tirana.
