Tirana has been Albania’s administrative center for almost a century but this city’s history goes even further back in time.

It grew significantly in size during the 18th century when the Et’hem Bey Mosque was built.From 1944 to 1990, Tirane (and the rest of Albania) suffered a period of isolation during the Communist regime. Still today, traces of this historical period can be found in different areas of Tirane. To discover more, come with us in this guided tour to find the best of Tirane’s communist landmarks.
