See the main sights of Tirana on a tour that features a guided walk through the city center, where you’ll see examples of Ottoman and Communist-era architecture. Stop at the National History Museum to learn about significant periods in the country’s past.

  • Discover some of the hidden statues left over from the Communist era
  • Visit the well-conserved Et'hem Bey Mosque, the oldest mosque in Tirana
  • Explore the National History Museum for a better understanding about Albania

The first thing you’ll hear about on this tour is how Albania changed in 1991, with so much happening in such a short time. This 3-hour guided walk is priced for a group of up to 16 persons.

As you cross the street with your guide you’ll find yourself in the middle of Scanderbeg Square. The square was named after an important Albanian figure of the 15th century, who successfully resisted Ottoman invasion for 25 years.

As you look around the square you’ll see an interesting complex of building which reflect the periods that have influenced Tirana’s architecture. Only the Clock Tower and Et'hem Bey Mosque remain as reminders of the city’s Ottoman past. The communist government left its own footprint by destroying the Ottoman Bazaar and building the new Opera and Ballet House on the site.

The next stop on the itinerary is Et'hem Bey Mosque, where you’ll learn about the difficulties faced by the clergy, especially after 1967 when freedom of religious expression was prohibited. The mosque was built in 1793 by Et'hem Bey in typical Turkish style.

Continue on your walk to King Zog’s Palace, National Martyrs Boulevard, and the former residential quarter for Communist party leaders.

At the end of the walking tour you’ll visit the National History Museum to learn about the history of Albanians, and this is where the tour ends as well.

Later on it grew into a small town where the centre of the city was the temple dedicated to Asclepius, God of Medicine around the 3rd century BC. During the Roman Period the settlement became a Roman colony changing significantly. After the Roman expansion the city grows again during the Byzantine period when it became an episcopal centre. Later on during the Venetian rule the city shrunk in size and importance to become just a small fisherman village. The last period to be inhabited was during the 19th century when this area was part of Ioannina principality under the rule of Ali Pasha Tepelena.

In the end of our visit we take a coffee break in the Archeological park and return to the city of Saranda where our tour ends.
