Tirana is a mixture of Western Europe and the old Russia, interspersed with influences of the Middle East. The city has overcome its recent troubled past and has stood up like a jewel in Eastern Europe. The modern Tirana is full of restaurants, nightlife and hotels and has rediscovered itself and become an energetic, vibrant and cosmopolitan city that it is worth exploring.
