Grand Park of Tirana and Petrela Castle

Grand Park of Tirana and Petrela Castle

Our professional tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana. First destination for today will be The Grand Park of Tirana, which is located in the southern part of the city. The Grand Park of Tirana is a popular place for recreational activities for residents of Tirana as well as a destination where various outdoor cultural events are held especially during the summer time. In the southern part of the park is the Tirana Zoo and the Botanical Garden. The Park was built in 1956 and it is 230 hectares. The Grand Park is famous for the nearby lake and it remains one of the most relaxing places in the city. Our next destination for today will be Petrela castle with a rich history from the medieval period. The castle was initially constructed in the 6th century AD whereas the present castle we have today dates back to the 15th century. During Skanderbeg’s fight against the Ottomans, Petrela Castle was under the command of his sister, Mamica Kastrioti. Today there is a restaurant inside the castle. The castle offers spectacular views of the Erzeni valley, the hills, olive groves and surrounding mountains. Petrela Castle is situated on top of a hill 329 metres (1,079 ft) above sea level. After visiting the castle, we will be back to Tirana.
