Tirana - not the most inviting capital in Europe. A visit to the last outpost of Communism, and still a very closed country in southern Europe. In all fairness my expectations were not all that high. In connection to a business trip I spent a couple of days in Tirana back in the fall of 2013, strolling around the city looking at buildings and constructions mostly from the Communist era. Next time around I'll head for the coast and up to the mountains.
