"Tirana - the least known European capital" skinz's Profile

Thanks...

... for visiting my page.

I will not say many words about Tirana's history or geographical position since you can find loads of such information on Lonely Planet or other touristic pages.

Instead I will try to give some practical and updated information which i think is still missing on websites about Albania.

For many people...

...Albania is considered as a mysterious - sometimes translated as a dangerous country to visit.

But as happens usual, this is more an impression coming from the media, which is of course focused on scoup news such as "coup d'etat", demonstrations, criminality etc.

Albania is still considered as a third world country - however most of the foreigners living in Tirana are doing almost the same kind of life as in their home towns.

Please check my tips page...

... and I hope you will be able to discover another side of my country - different from what you might already know.

Please feel free to contact me for any other information which will not be included in this page. I will be happy to assist :)

    Hm, just read in the press about electricity shortages... looks like your beautiful view will have to do without the illumination for a couple of hours :-(
