Tirana, the capital of Albania, is known for its colorful Ottoman-, Fascist- and Soviet-era architecture. The area occupied by Tirana has been populated since the Paleolithic era, dating back 10,000 to 30,000 years ago, as suggested by evidence from tools excavated near Mount Dajt's quarry and in Pellumba Cave. As argued by various archaeologists, Tirana and its suburbs are filled with Illyrian toponyms, as its precincts are some of the earliest inhabited regions in Albania. The Illyrians called the settlement Tërana.


Durrës, historically also known as Durazzo and Dyrrachium, is the second largest city and a municipality of Albania. It is central on the coast, about 33 km west of the capital Tirana. Was sacred by Aphrodite.Is the largest port of Albania and the most ancient port in region too.Has an ancient history,the remnants of which make for fascinating visit.llyrians first settled here in627BC,and Durres became a prosperous trading harbour.


Krujë is a town and a municipality in north central Albania. Located between Mount Krujë and the Ishëm River, the city is only 20 km north from the capital of Albania, Tirana. Inhabited by the Illyrian tribe of the Albani, in 1190 Krujë became the capital of the first autonomous Albanian state in the middle ages, the Principality of Arbër. Later it was the capital of the Kingdom of Albania, while in the early 15th century Krujë was conquered by the Ottoman Empire.

Dajti Mountain

Mount Dajt is a mountain and national park in central Albania, to the east of Tirana. Its highest peak is at 1,613 m. Dajti Mountain was declared a National Park in 1966, and has an expanded area of about 29,384 ha since 2006. It is a popular retreat to the local population of Tirana that rarely sees snow falls. Its slopes have forests of pines, oak and beech, while its interior contains canyons, waterfalls, caves, a lake, and an ancient castle.

Jala Beach

Green of the endless olive groves intertwines with the diaphanous blue of the Ionian sea and the azure of the sky in a perfect harmony. Visitors never feel like a stranger, as the locals greet him/her as they would an old acquaintance.
