Explore Tirana - one of the most colorful capitals of Europe - on a guided tour in the city center. See examples of Ottoman and Communist-era architecture interweaving with exceptional street art.

The tour begins at the Scanderberg Square - named after an important Albanian figure of the 15th century, who successfully resisted Ottoman invasion for 25 years. Here your guide will tell you about the Ottoman Empire and the role of Tirana in its structure. The next stop on the itinerary is Et'hem Bey Mosque - one of the few buildings in typical Turkish style in Tirana. Learn about the difficulties faced by the clergy during communism and how the life of the citizens looked like in these times. 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. This tour will give you a possibility to observe how the city changed over the centuries and which components create its particularity and charm.
