“Rinia Park (Youth Park) is a public park in the centre of Tirana. Built in 1950, it covers an area of 29 hectares. Initially it was a pleasant family park where Tirana residents took their children and relax in the evenings or at weekends. Later it took the name Taiwan after the complex to the side of the green area, which is like an island in the Park. There is another funny story behind this name. The construction of Taiwan complex finished just when the Albania's communist regime broke relations with China. At that time, Albania recognized the sovereignty of Taiwan and named the new structure in the middle of Tirana in their support. These are the rumors, one can not bet that this is the truth. The history of the park, continues in '90. After the collapse of the regime, illegal buildings sprang up all around the park, but during the city's clean-up in 2000, more than 130 buildings were demolished and the park was reseeded with grass. The white terraced building complex on the western edge is decorated with fountains houses cafés, restaurants and a bowling and billiards centre in the basement. Named after an old nickname for the park, the entire centre is known as the Taiwan. Both names are used. Youth park, or Taiwan is today a popular meeting place for people since the Taiwan complex has nice cafés and very good restaurants.”

“Before the 90s, for the majority of Albanians, information represented a luxury. For the most part, it was entirely absent and, even when provided, it was carefully selected and manipulated to keep the population under control. This category of fiercely guarded governmental secrets included the construction of the anti-nuclear bunker, inaugurated in 1978 by EnverHoxha with one specific aim in mind: the protection of communist officials from a potential attack by foreign armies, an attack which never happened. This 5-story underground palace, built in Tirana’s northeastern entrance, includes 106 rooms and a large conferential hall. A number of the rooms exhibit aspects of Hoxha's life through”

“Located in a quieter part of town not far from Skanderberg Square, Hemingway has a friendly atmosphere, over 100 types of rum—that’s it’s specialty liquor—and old-fashioned décor reminiscent of the 1970s and ‘80s in Albania, but with a bohemian twist. Fittingly, the music playing inside is always jazz. Foreigners may be surprised because here they will find the same quality of cocktails like in bigger cities like London or New York.”

“Another one for the slightly older crowd and named after the infamous Berlin border crossing, Checkpoint Charlie is a raucous party bar full Berlin Wall memorabilia and a regular crowd of local ladies and gentlemen grinding away to the rhythm of classic rock and pop. Snacks such as chicken wings and French fries are always available although the main draw seems to be the affordable beer, which curiously is often sold auction-style, changing price every now and then depending on demand. Find it down the alley near the Hotel de Paris.”
