Its been some time since my last visit to Tirana. Well the central Skenderbeg square is a very nice place very nicely renovated and ice lighted spot. Tirana has too much and too bussy traffic but this spot here is a place to visit

The Skanderberg statue is definitely a symbol, linking old and new Tirana. Not surprising it is widely offered in postcards and souvenirs!
