Tirana is the capital, financial and economic centre of Albania, and has undergone many changes from the dull grey city it once was. The grand boulevards are lined with fascinating buildings from its Ottoman, Italian and communist past. The trendy Biloku district that was formely a closed area reserved only for the elite during the comminist era, now hosts trendy bars, caf├Ęs and nightclubs. The city has some fine museums, art galleries and excellent restaurants that offer interesting Albanian cuisine.
