    Dear All,

    I would be interested to hear colleague's opinions and recent experiences of living and working in Albania, especially in the capital Tirana.

    Thank you,

    Which school? I know one that is OK and two that are horrible. Proceed with caution.

    No, I have never been to Albania, but I imagine that in some ways it is quite similar to Bulgaria. While BG has changed a lot in the fifteen years that I have come here, Albania is not part of the EU and therefore it may not be as developed as some parts of Eastern Europe.

    I lived in Albania for 3 years. feel free to PM me with questions.

    Tirana is fantastic although the vehicle pollution is bad. Everything is incredibly cheap. One bed apartment will cost 300 euros a month. Average salary is also around 300 euros a month!
    Can't wait to return for a visit.
