Art Gallery, Art Museum, History Museum
Tirana is one of the liveliest capitals of the Balkan Peninsula with plenty of museums and art galleries that are worth a visit. Once in town, don’t miss BunkArt, a gorgeous museum built inside a huge underground bunker that was constructed during the communist-era on the outskirts of Tirana (we suggest grabbing a cab to reach it). The bunker was built to accommodate the former dictator Enver Hoxha in case of a nuclear attack. Hoxha died a few years before the bunker was completed and it was never used for its purpose. Today, the bunker has been converted into one of the coolest history museums and contemporary art galleries of the Balkan Peninsula, perfect for those who are interested to learn something about the modern history of Albania: BunkArt provides an interesting journey through the recent history of the country, from the Italian occupation to the communism.
