Rinia Park is the central public park of Tirana, Albania. Built in 1950 during the communist era, it covers an area of.GeographyThe park, from the central square, is bordered by Dëshmorët e Kombit Boulevard to the east, Bulevardi Gjergi Fishta and Bajram Curri Boulevard to the south, Rruga Ibrahim Rugova (former "Deshmoret e 4 Shkurtit") to the west and Rruga Myslym Shyri to the north. Immediately to the north is the Teatri i Kukullave and the Orthodox Cathedral. The Taivani Center and water fountain are located on the western perimeter of the park.HistoryRinia Park was built in 1950 as part of a major urban development program which developed after World War II. It was initially a pleasant family park where inhabitants of Tirana could take their children. It was a relatively free space for youth of Tirana, while standing right in front of the communist "Block" across the Lana River, thus it started to be called ironically "Taiwan". Later a complex of cafés and restaurants was erected.In 1991, after the end of communism, illegal buildings sprang up all around the park; most of these buildings were kiosks, bars and restaurants, and the park became notorious as a hang-out for the kingpins of Tirana's underworld. During the city's cleanup in 2000, these buildings were razed and the park was replanted. All in all, some 130 buildings were demolished and over of waste removed.

  • It's brilliantly green. There are several entertainments for families or couples. Except of the green area there are many stores around and even an bowling place. There are definitely nice people there and very helpful ones.
  • Nice place to be. You can enjoy good food, good view, meet nice people
  • Nice place to spend some time in the evening. In fact it was our goto place while we've been in Tiranë. Kids playing around, cafés etc
  • Quiet and big park in the middle of the city, children and families
  • I can call it just a green area.
