Park Rinia photo 0

Rinia Park (or Youth park) is the central park of the city of Tirana closely located to Skanderbeg Square. With an area of about 30 hectares the park was founded in 1950 as part of a program to rebuild the city after World War II. In 1991, after the end of the communist regime in the country, a lot of illegal structures appeared on the territory of the park and the park got a bad reputation as a recreation area for criminal authorities. During the reconstruction projects of Tirana in 2000, most of these buildings were demolished, and the park was re-planned. About 130 buildings were demolished. Now it is a pleasant place to relax and stroll.
