Tirana In Your Pocket

It’s good to be back. Tirana has been through some rough times since our last edition, but much has changed and we’re looking forward to a brilliant year in Albania. What's changed? Prices have gone up, American expats have arrived in force with the year-long visa-free offer, skyscrapers are shooting up like concrete weeds, and suddenly everyone’s on instagram. 

A city that seemingly never sleeps, full of friendly faces and featuring surprises hidden around every corner, Albania’s compact capital draws an abundance of visitors from budget backpackers looking for pastures new to entrepreneurs with an eye on the city’s emerging investment opportunities.

In the brand new 11th edition of Tirana In Your Pocket, published in 2022, we take a look at agrotourism and farm-to-table trends, go on a day trip to Kruja and spend quality time in some nuclear bunkers.

The guide provides everything its title promises - packed full of useful and entirely independent information about the city from the best sights to visit during a whistle-stop stay to the best restaurants in the city to where to buy painkillers in the middle of the night on your way home from a nightclub.

The print version of the Tirana In Your Pocket guide can be found for sale in Tirana at Libraria Albania on Rr. Sami Frashëri near Rr. Brigada e VIII (www.albaniabook.com) and Libri Universitar on the corner of Rr. Abdyl Frashëri and Rr. Ibrahim Rugova. It can also be ordered online with local delivery at Tirana Book (www.tiranabook.al).

We hope you enjoy exploring Tirana as much as we do writing about it. We welcome all tips and comments at publishing@landways.eu.
