All of us has seen colorful buildings, but none can compare to the ones in Tirana. No two buildings have the same design and color. Most of the designs are geometrical, but each and every one is painted with a vibrant mix of colors that’ll leave you looking around for more. As you walk along the city, one of the best routes to take is alongside the river Lana. It’s easier to find the buildings in this route though they’re quite scattered all around the city.
Believe it or not, it wasn’t all this colorful and fun to look at. A few years back it was quite a grim and sad city. But all of that thankfully changed when they elected Edi Rama as mayor. Being an artist himself, he took on the challenge to make Tirana a little bit better and a lot more pleasing to the eyes. At first he just went with his own sketches, but after some time he decided to hire a number of foreign artists. Not only that, but he invited local children and students to participate in the beautification of Tirana.
Through the years, some colors have begun to fade away but a lot are still as bright as ever. As you walk farther from the city center, you’ll notice that the buildings become brighter and brighter with each step. There is nothing particularly special with their design and the way that they are painted, but all in all they are a magical sight to behold.
