As the capital city of Albania, Tirana is the heart of culture, government activity and economics in the country. It sits in the north-central part of the country. Many students are drawn to this city because of the mild Mediterranean climate and the beautiful Mussolini-era architecture.
Students in Tirana can spend time in the city’s focal point, Skanderberg Square. Here, they can visit the national museum, government buildings, the opera house and the famous equestrian statue for which the square was named. Not only will anyone studying here be able to soak in the culture, but there may also be an opportunity to work alongside professionals in a variety of fields.
