Tirana's city centre, along with the opera inside the Palace of Culture, the National History Museum, the frescoed Et'hem Bey Mosque and a clock tower that's a city landmark, are all located on or near Sheshi Skënderbej (Skanderbeg Square). The National History Museum's exterior features a huge mosaic that portrays Albania's long history, from ancient times to the present, while its displays inside focus on artefacts from the many archaeological sites scattered throughout the country.
Tajvani, in Tirana's city centre, is filled with restaurants, casinos and bars. Surrounded by a huge lighted fountain with a glowing bridge, Tajvani is a colourful place that also offers people-watching: it's frequented by many Albanian celebrities.

Albania is small, so you can also use your accommodation in Tirana as a base to explore other regions in the country. Petrela Castle, one of Albania’s best-preserved, is only 15 km from Tirana. Perched on a steep slope overlooking the road to Elbasan, it dates from 500 AD and was built to defend the ancient trading port Durrës. Butrint, another ancient Albanian city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a well-preserved Greek theatre, a large Roman house, an early Christian church and ages-old massive city walls. Gjirokastra is yet another Albanian UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for its unique Ottoman architecture, cobbled streets, quaint bazaar and large castle.
Berat is an Albanian town with a rugged mountain setting, preserved as a museum city by the former communist government. White Ottoman houses climb up a hill to mosques, mediaeval churches and a well-preserved castle that's still inhabited. Berat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, also features Albania's best collection of religious icons.
