Albania, and in particular its capital, Tirana, is slowly being discovered by tourists from all over the world. The best way to start exploring this beautiful and underrated country is with our guide to the best things to see and do.

Visit the coveted museums, BunkArt & BunkArt2

If there are two places not to be missed in Tirana, they are BunkArt and BunkArt2, two museums built inside two coveted anti-nuclear buildings. While BunkArt is bigger and located on the outskirts of Tirana, BunkArt2 is right in the middle of the town, near the main landmarks of the city.

Discover Albania’s past through a walking tour

A different, and cool, way to explore the capital city of Albania is to book a Communist tour in town. Good Albania organizes these kind of tours and brings you to visit all the main Communist places of Tirana, such as BunkArt, Blloku (which during the regime was reserved only for the political elites), Museum of Surveillance, Socialist buildings and taste typical Albanian street food.
