From the sophisticated shops and restaurants in Blloku to the landmarks around Skanderbeg Square, expect non-stop sightseeing in Tirana
In contrast to Albania's charming and quiet countryside dotted in ancient villages and an iconic coast, the capital is a lively destination with lots to see and do. Head to Skanderbeg Square in the city center for a convenient starting point from which to explore. The square is surrounded by many of the capital's most famous attractions, including the National History Museum and Et'hem Bey Mosque. Hop from one dining venue to the next as you explore each landmark and sample the local cuisine. For high-end shopping and unparalleled nightlife scene, Blloku, once a restricted neighborhood, is now a popular spot in the city.
