Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Tirana

Tirana er en blanding av Vest-Europa og det gamle Russland, ispedd påvirkninger fra Midtøsten. Byen har overvunnet sin nylige urolige fortid og reist seg som en perle i Øst-Europa. Det moderne Tirana er fullt av restauranter, uteliv og hoteller, og har gjenoppdaget seg selv og blitt en energisk, levende og kosmopolitisk by som det er verdt å utforske.

Tirana er fortsatt et reisemål hvor du får mye for pengene.
