Tanners’ Bridge

Ura e Tabakëve, Tirana, Albania

Description:

This minor attraction is from the 1700s and is a fascinating fragment of Tirana’s Ottoman history, giving an impression of how the city went about its business in the years after its foundation. These days it’s a humble stone pedestrian bridge, but when it was built it was the main route for farmers to bring their livestock into the butchery and leatherworking district. These days the Lanë River that the bridge used to traverse has been redirected, so the bridge is kept as a monument. From the bridge you can also see the Tanners’ Mosque, which was constructed by the Tanners’ guild in the 1700s.

Dajti Mountain National Park

Dajti Mountain National Park, Dajt, Tirana, Albania

Description:

In Europe it’s unusual to find a national park right on the doorstep of a capital city, so don’t pass up the chance to venture out further into the mountain range that forms Tirana’s eastern boundary. If you want to really get out and experience the natural scenery here, take the trail that connects Mount Dajti with Mount Tujani, which rises to 1,580 metres. This peak is the highest in the park and can be scaled on foot if you’re a regular hiker. The view from the top is what the effort is for, not least because it includes the vast water reservoir, Lake Bovilla. Surrounding this lake are sheer cliffs that also provide some excellent climbing walls.
