I never realised before but I must say, Tirana is a very nice looking city indeed. I love how the city is enclosed by mountains ... and how open everything seem to be.

Tirana keep improving year after year.Before some years ..the city had an very bad face,Tirana was totally an ruined city.In year 2000 ,Tirana felt in the hands of an new mayor ,EDI RAMA,and he did an great job with the city.He totally transformed Tirana,new infranstructure,more parks,new and modern buildings.

PS:This thread has no intention to show luxurious cars that some Albos have,but just to show the new face of the city.

"Luxury" is some kind of "disease" that eastern europeans have and buying expensive cars is an common way to show it.

During Communism people couldn't possess cars, I imagine their leaders preferred Mercedes or whatever which lead to everybody in Albania wanting to have a Mercedes.

Last year one Albanian told me 'in Tirana you can see the best cars', I remembered his words when I saw these pics, also a big proportion of these cars can't be taken outside the country by their owners... because they were imported in not the most legal of ways.

Almost 1 mil. of Albanians work in western countries and r very good payed...So,if u have worked in Italy for more than 10 years..dont u think that u allow to yourself to buy an Mercedes?

Shqiptario, I think you misunderstood me, I never said or implied ALL nice cars in Albania were stolen.

Probably safer than most cities in Europe, along with the other Balkan cities. Despite of what you see on television.
