Flying to Tirana

The capital of Albania

Mediterranean climate

5 degrees

2 hours and 30 minutes

Tirana, the capital of Albania, may not be familiar to many but the city has plenty on offer. Besides its pleasant climate, Tirana is a hub of culture, museums, remarkable buildings and beautiful parks. If you want to see more than the city itself, you can take a trip to the mountainous hinterland or visit the seaside resort of Dürres. A great way to combine a city break with a beach holiday.

Places to visit in Tirana

One of the monuments you simply can’t miss is Partizani i Panjohur - Tirana’s statue of an unknown partisan. Another sight worth visiting is Skanderberg Square: a large plaza where most of the city’s main events and happenings take place. It is also home to a number of Tirana’s most important buildings. The Palace of Culture and National History Museum are two buildings with truly unique architecture.
