2019 august: Albania - Tirana
This summer, our third and last part of a trip through the Balkan Peninsula followed. After traveling to Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia in summer 2017 and Serbia and Macedonia in summer 2018, Albania and Montenegro followed this year.
We started in Tirana, the capital of Albania. It is anticipated that Albania is well worth a visit. Tirana is known for its colorful architecture with influences from the Ottoman and Soviet times. Starting from Skanderbeg square with its equestrian statue, there are still many interesting buildings in the surrounding area, such as the National Museum and Orthodox Churches.
