Welcome to Tirana, the capital of Albania.
Tirana is the capital of Albania and also the main economic and cultural center of the country. Its history starts with the Neolithic period, and there are three theories about how the name of Tirana has derived:
The name Tirana derives from the word Theranda. Mentioned in the ancient Greek and Latin sources because those living there called it “Te ranat” (fallen material).
Its name derives from the name “Tyros” (old Greek name) which means dairy produce.
And the third theory is that the name derives from “Tirkan”, which was a castle in Dajti’s Mountainside. The ruins of a castle of the 1st century A.D. were discovered at the foot of the mountain, and they still exist.
