    There's not much left of the fortress of Justinian, part of the walls and the foundations of the Tower, but it's good to know that this emperor father of civil law, built fortresses in Albania.

    Fortress of Justinian, or as it is-the castle of Tirana is a remnant of the Byzantine era. At the moment, is a 6-meter wall of the Ottoman era.

Where to stay in Tirana

All areas of Tirana boast accommodation at various price points. Hostels and hotels housed in Communist buildings dot the city center and immediate surroundings. As with the rest of Albania, prices here are generally low, and you can find even better deals as you move away from the city center. The tourism industry is fairly new in Tirana and the country as a whole, but you’ll be welcomed warmly by hospitable staff eager to show off their freshly post-Communist nation.
