^^ I know Albanian women can be rather sexy, and I got the feeling one would stick out in an international group because of features typical of your nation only.

New Gjinokastra houses have an interesting design. I don't think I've ever come across a similar complex in other Balkan countries.

Also what's with the EcoVolis bicycles, public sharing?

Hahaha albanian women are very beautiful indeed , and that is ironical coming from a guy that his fiance is from a scandinavian country lol .

New gjinokastra is being built by an albanian businessman called Sajmir Mane , he has many malls in albania but also on a few other balkan countries , and The Neptun electronics chains etc.etc. ( It is not the only complex in fact , there are 3 more complexes being built right now by other ventors )

Yes ecovolis is public sharing , u just leave your id details to someone for security , and then you are free to take a bike to tour Tirana .

I'm surprised Tirana runs a bike share scheme. What about theft and vandalism? Also I wonder if Tirana supports the bicycle sharing system with enough paths. Burgas on the Black Sea should start a similar scheme.

I am not aware of any incidents of theft or vandalism although i am sure that there must be individual cases . However , it seems very popular with younger people and in fact it has successfully created a bike culture in Tirana .

I agree , the advantages seem to outweigh the disadvantages ( which in fact i know none of such ) , and it is a very convenient way of touring the city . It would be a very good idea for touristic places . :cheers:

Durres , second most populated city of Albania only 35 km away from Tirana



Jérôme Maeder



The harbor of Durres . From Tirana you can be there in 30 minutes , thats why the industrial part of Albania is located between Tirana and Durres

People claiming the bicycling lanes , from irresponsible people that double park
their cars ( although you cannot blame them , finding a parking place is a big problem in Tirana )

The reason why albania has been nominated by multiple organizations as the next touristic hotspot

Not that many people know the beauty of Albania . However lately more and more global organisations are starting to notice . In the same time , more and more visitors as well are starting to come to Albania , only last year there was a record number of visitors of around 4.2 milion tourists - an increase of 550% in just 7 years -

Albania has been nominated >
