The city was transformed in the early 2000’s when the city officials decided to demolish old and unwanted buildings and replaced them with large and colourful apartment buildings and recreational areas and public parks were renovated. There are plenty of tourist attractions in the city including the ruins of Tirana’s own castle at the Fortress of Justinian, built during the 14th century, its ruins are covered in vines and its foundations are to be incorporated into a local pedestrian area. The Clock Tower in Tirana was once the tallest building; it has 90 steps in a spiral staircase and used to have a bell inside made in Venice, although the original building was destroyed during WWII, it is now rebuilt and has public access.
