Date late October

Tirana, the capital city of the Balkan country of Albania was a great eye opener for us. We were surprised at how open, friendly, and modern the city is. For 80 years Albania was under a strict Communist regime and dictatorship, finally freeing itself in the early 1990’s. The ‘House of leaves’ and ‘Bunkart’ provide a fascinating lesson in history. Sitting at the foot of Mount Dajti – take the cable car for unrivalled views – this city is well laid out and ideal for a race weekend break away. Coffee shops galore and very friendly and hospitable people. The races start and finish in Skanderbeg Square, with a great atmosphere.
