BUNKART & Cable Car & Mount Dajti National Park
We will start our adventure by discovering Tirana, the capital of Albania. Colorful, lively, vibrant, dynamic, 24/7 and crazy nightlife - these are some of the words that better describe this city where the communist and capitalist-era buildings battle on a daily basis. Tirana offers a great combination of very interesting museums, historic sites, national parks, mountains and Ottoman, Italian and communist style architecture all clashing with each other, but offering a great pleasure to wander through. Not to be missed is Tirana’s delicious food varieties, from the tasty and cheap street food to the finest gourmet options. BUNKART1 is one of the most interesting museums in Tirana. Initially designed as a nuclear bunker offering shelter to the Albanian communist supreme leader Enver Hoxha and his close party members during the cold war. The bunker was hidden to the general public until 2014, when the Albanian government decided to initiate an interesting project that converted the nuclear bunker into a museum. BUNKART1 is video museum exhibition dedicated to the history of the Albanian communist army and to the daily lives of Albanians during the regime.
In the afternoon we will get on the cable car up to the top of Dajti Mountain National Park. Mount Dajti is considered as the balcony of Tirana offering an amazing view the city especially during the sunsets and in late evenings when the lights of the city offer an inspiring romantic atmosphere.
