Tirana offers a surprisingly diverse selection of culture considering its size. Finding it is another matter entirely though. Visit the websites of the venues listed below, ask anyone with an interesting haircut and keep an eye out for posters around the city.


Films are usually shown in their original languages with Albanian subtitles. Tickets generally cost from between 300 lek and 500 lek. The Tirana International Film Festival (www.tiranafilmfest.com) takes place every year in June.

Cultural centres

Not only do these foreign-run centres allow locals and foreigners alike access to many materials, they are important promotors of international culture, and support many events.
