Tirana, the heart and capital of Albania, like all other capital metropolises has never-ending movement and energy. With its clubs, bars, cafes and taverns, Tirana is worth discovering by both day and night. The hospitality shown towards tourists is something that will mark your journey not only in Tirana but also all over the country. Have a walk from the main square through the boulevard and finish the tour with a visit of Bunk’Art 2.
The little cousin to the main Bunk’Art, this museum, which is within a communist era bunker and underground tunnel system below the Ministry of Internal Affairs, focuses on the role of the police and security services in Albania through the turbulent 20th century. While this might not sound especially interesting, the whole thing has been very well put together and makes for a fascinating journey behind police lines.
After that we will have a walk from the main square through the boulevard with the buildings which house the many offices of the state infrastructure. We will visit the old “Block” area, which was a part of the town, where only the communist leaders used to live.
