Beautiful pictures, but where are the historic buildings!?!

Tirana looks like a beautiful, busy city, but I didn't see one historic building.

That's the problem.
Tirana has little history , it's a new capital.
The only "historic" buildings if you may call them as such are the ministries built in the 30's that represent unique italian architecture of the time.

The two pics hsow the same gas station. In the small one you can see Boutique Estel, a fashion shop,that was apparently closed when the pic was taken. The second one is taken from a different angle and shows the Writers League Bar (what used to be Rendez vous bar). The building is located infront of Millenium cinema. During the rehabilitation of Kavaja St. the building was about to be taken down but they did not do that because it sattisfied Rama's taste in terms of how the building looks.


All these colors on winter irritate me, but I must admit that in spring and summer they rock.

Tirana was decided to be a capital as an outcome of a political process. If you look for historical venues, Durres, Apollonia, Shkodra, Saranda etc are the right places. Tirana is a great place for young people as it offers unlimited options for entertainment. It is a very vivid city. Because of that the colors do not contrast with the life style Tirana youth have.

Labi thanks for the pics. I have not visited the downtown since months because I did not have time but your pictures ade me realize the wonderful job that was done there, so I paid it a visit. Wonderful as usual, full of youth who apparently did not enjoyed school that much today and dedicated their time to the hundreds of cafes there.

He was famous for a while as he was hanging aorund all day:



Police in trouble:



...he is just not letting them enter the Blloku area because during the summer, from 1800-2300, it is a pedestrian only area

University building. Very popular once. Then they did not allow young people spend their afternoon there anymore sp everybody transfered in the bars around.

it's a bit true but people weren't allowed to own cars also thanks to those communist pigs. Only the communist elite were allowed to own a car.

I love this shot of the city.
It looks very pleasant and it will be even more once those fantastic projects will be finished.
They absolutely match the atmosphere , the colors , the design and the whole look about those projects just fits right in.

These are the 3 projects that will certainy add to the image of Tirana as being different from many cities in Europe:

The first 2 will be located by Skenderbeu Square , the first one for sure but the second will be close to the square.







The last one is just an amazing project , incredible architecture and the location where they will built it is a great one.

Besides the three projects FR showed, there are 9 other high rises of which designs need to be approved. The commission evaluating the projects and deciding on the designs has some experienced foreign architects, particularly from western europe. The first three designs that have been approved are promissing so I am eagerly waiting for the other 9.

Regarding infrastrucutre both the project for the center of Tirana as well as a new urban master plan have been approved, because the one approved in 1989 was useless cosidering that Tirana the last years grew 4 time more in relation the growth from 1945-1990. The new urban mp was done in consultancy with a Dutch company. Information is very limmited though, and I apart the fact that I saw it on the news some time ago, I have no other info.
