Itinerary

*Hiking Dajti Mountain

 
We start the trip with a panoramic cable car ride to the National Park, after which we will follow a trail through the oak forest. Dajti Mountain is a popular destination for outdoor activities such as hiking, trekking, and picnicking. If it’s panoramic views and fresh air you’re after, an escape from the hustle and bustle of Tirana, then this Albania gift experience certainly won’t disappoint. Though you’ll be doing a fair bit of walking as you cross the Cherry Pass, which divides the peaks of Dajti and Maja e Tujanit, it’s nothing too strenuous. We can enjoy a snack at the peak of Tujani (optional) and then head back to the national park to enjoy a coffee stop at Dajti Panoramic Bar.


*Tirana Walking Tour / Or Visit Bunk ‘art Museum Tunnel


Afterwards we head back to Tirana. The capital city of Albania is a modern, lively, colorful, attractive town and it has many unique and fine attractions to offer. 


Skanderbeg square 


Skanderbeg Square, or Sheshi Skënderbej in Albanian, is the main square in the heart of Tirana, the capital city of Albania. The square is named after George Kastrioti Skanderbeg, a national hero and military commander who led the resistance against the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century. At the center of the square stands a large equestrian statue of Skanderbeg, who is considered a symbol of Albanian resistance against the Ottoman Turks. The monument was unveiled in 1968 and is a prominent feature of the square. Skanderbeg Square is a central hub for cultural events, celebrations, and gatherings.


Bunk ‘Art Museum (Anti-Nuclear tunnel) OPTIONAL

 

The museum is housed in a massive underground bunker built during the rule of Enver Hoxha, the communist leader of Albania from 1944 to 1985. The museum was established to shed light on the oppressive regime of Enver Hoxha and the communist era in Albania. It provides a glimpse into the political, social, and cultural aspects of life during that time. Bunk ‘Art features a series of rooms and corridors, each dedicated to a specific aspect of Albania's communist history. Exhibits include photographs, documents, personal testimonies, and various artifacts that help visitors understand the daily life and challenges faced by the Albanian people during the communist regime.


Et’hem Bey Mosque

 

The Et'hem Bey Mosque, also known as the Haxhi Ethem Bey Mosque, is a historic mosque located in the center of Tirana. The mosque was built in the late 18th century, completed in 1821. It was named after its founder, Haxhi Ethem Bey, who was a prominent Bejtexhi (a Sufi mystic) and a member of the ruling class. The mosque is adorned with beautiful frescoes, ornate calligraphy, and geometric patterns both on the exterior and interior. The artwork reflects the cultural and artistic influences of the Ottoman era.


The clock-tower


The Clock Tower of Tirana is a prominent landmark located in the center of Tirana, the capital city of Albania. The Clock Tower was built in 1822 during the Ottoman period. It was part of the Et'hem Bey Mosque complex, and its construction is attributed to Haxhi Et'hem Bey, who also built the mosque. The Clock Tower is a popular attraction for both locals and tourists, and it adds to the cultural and historical richness of Tirana. It serves as a reminder of the city's past and a point of interest in the vibrant atmosphere of Skanderbeg Square.


The National Art Gallery of Albania 

 

The gallery was established in 1954 and is housed in a distinctive building with a neoclassical architectural style. It has undergone renovations and expansions over the years. The National Art Gallery features an extensive collection of Albanian visual art, showcasing works from the 13th century to the present day. The collection includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and other forms of visual art. Being located in the heart of Tirana, the National Art Gallery is easily accessible, making it a cultural hub for both locals and tourists interested in exploring Albanian art and culture.


The Pyramid


The Pyramid was built in 1988 as a museum to honor Enver Hoxha, the communist leader of Albania from 1944 to 1985. It was designed by the daughter and son-in-law of Enver Hoxha, and its construction was completed just after his death.

“Blloku” area 


The Blloku area was once a restricted residential zone during the communist era in Albania. It was primarily reserved for government officials, high-ranking party members, and foreign diplomats. Ordinary citizens were not allowed to enter the area, and it had an exclusive and secretive atmosphere. Today, the Blloku area is known for its lively atmosphere, featuring numerous cafes, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. It has become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, offering a diverse range of dining and entertainment options.
