The bustling plaza, named after the national hero Skanderbeg, beckons us with its grandeur. Towering over the square is the equestrian statue of Skanderbeg himself, a symbol of the nation's valor and resilience. Surrounding us are neo-Renaissance buildings housing the Opera & Ballet Theater, the National Library, and various government edifices, each telling a tale of Tirana's storied past. Our next stop takes us to the tranquil oasis of the Et’hem Bey Mosque. Stepping inside, we're enveloped in a sense of serenity as ornate frescoes adorn the walls, depicting scenes from Albanian history and culture. We pause to reflect on the mosque's pivotal role in the nation's journey to democracy, where thousands once gathered in a historic moment of unity.

From this vantage point, we witness the vibrant energy of Tirana's streets below, bustling with life and activity.

Amidst the hustle and bustle, we stumble upon Sali Shijaku Villa, a treasure trove of art and culture, where the legacy of Albania's greatest painter comes to life before our eyes. Crossing the historic Tanners’ Bridge, we're transported back in time to Tirana's Ottoman past. The ancient stone structure stands as a silent witness to centuries of history, its weathered façade a testament to the passage of time. As the day draws to a close, we find solace in the hallowed halls of Namazgah Mosque. Here, amidst the whispers of prayer, we find peace and tranquility, a sanctuary amidst the chaos of the city. As we bid farewell to Tirana's streets, we carry with us memories of a journey filled with history, culture, and the enduring spirit of Albania.
