Albania is not really known for its cuisine, even though their food is really good. They are known for something other than their food- but for their amazing coffee and beer. But if food is something you want, there is no need to worry there are also many small restaurants that serve good food they include places like Gourmet, Sky Club, Oda, Vila 100, Piazza Piano Bar, E7E, The Black Sheep, Daily Bar, Padam, and The Tea Room.

The most common religion practised in Albania is Islam, which is followed by Christianity. Albanians are very hospitable, they are also known for showing respect on account of their age.

This is a beautiful city with beautiful people and it is definitely a place that can really be enjoyed.

This is a fairly safe place to visit and explore. Although there are petty crimes like pickpocketing that does occur from time-to-time especially when its holiday season, so tourists need to be aware of their surroundings.
