If you plan to visit Albania’s capital, make sure to consider our Tirana car hire services. The city is constantly developing and growing, this used to be a problem a few years ago creating power outages and wise-scale pollution, but now it is under control.
If you fly into the city you will be landing at Tirana Airport which is called Mother Teresa Airport, situated seventeen kilometers from the center of town. The airport is connected via an hourly bus but your best choice by far would be to employ out Tirana car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport. By doing this you won’t have to wait for the bus and you’ll reach your destination that much faster.
Once you find yourself in the city you can start by visiting the city’s center called Skanderbeg Square. The Square’s center is dominated by the Albanian hero Skanderbeg and the square itself leads to the National History Museum, the clock tower and the Mosque.
Tirana has its very own version of the Champs de Elysee, a panoramic boulevard called Deshmoret e Kombit and it features many great hotels, gardens and government buildings.
The Clock Tower is a symbol of the city because it is one of the oldest constructions in the city dating from the 1820′s.
The Et’hem Bey Mosque is one of the most beautiful mosques in Albania featuring interesting artwork and decorations.
The National History Museum is easily recognizable due to its particular huge mosaic on its front facade. The Museum itself houses many artifacts which date from ancient times through Hoxha’s regime but unfortunately due to repeated looting a lot of the artifacts have been robbed.
The city also has a few parks the largest being the Grand Park along the artificial lake. This is a place where people have picnics and generally have fun enjoying the natural beauty offered by the old huge trees and the open spaces surrounding them. The artificial lake is located in the middle of the park and the entire place is very popular with locals and tourists alike.
These have been only a few of the many sights that Tirana has to offer, you can see many more of them with the help of our Tirana car hire services.
