Tirana, Albania — 4 nights

Tirana, the largest city in Albania, represents one a lively and fast-paced metropolis.

There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Muzeu Historik Kombetar, take in the spiritual surroundings of Et`hem Bey Mosque, step into the grandiose world of Preza Castle, and brush up on your military savvy at Bunk'Art 1.
