2. Take a picture at the Christmas Tree
Probably the largest in an Albanian city, Tirana’s Christmas tree is always surrounded by deers and carriages, lights and music. You can also pay 2 to 3 Euros for a professional photographer who will bring you a printed photograph in a few minutes. A nice Christmas memory, right?
3. Make memories with Santa Claus
Santa doesn’t only comes for the little ones, he’s for everyone who’s willing to get the best of the Christmas Season. So have no shame in asking him to take a picture with you, for he is waiting.
4. Challenge your fears at the amusement park
There are several options if you dare to challenge your fears in the heights. Only for the strong hearted though. And the unstoppable ones.
5. Enjoy the view by the ferris wheel
Skanderbeg Square looks wonderful from above if you take a ride with the ferris wheel. It is not scary at all, unlike the other rides on the square. It’s perfect for every age and every one.
6. Ride a horse in a carousel
What would be a Christmas market without a carousel? I can not even immagine. If riding a real horse sounds too much for you kids, the carousel might be a good solution for them.

7. Popcorn and lollipop for every age
Haven’t had a lollipop in a long time? Then this is the moment to get back to childhood when any kind of candy was acceptable and gaining weight was not a problem at all. Some popcorn to enjoy a nice conversation? Can never say No to that!
8. Test your skills at the Funny House
You will never know if you are capable at this game if you never try. You might end up getting a free bottle of liquor. Test yourself and invite your friends to show their skills. Focus and go!
9. Eat some Albanian petulla
Something like donuts, but better. Albanian petulla is a snack you can not find in any restaurant, so once you have it on Skanderbeg Square, you don’t want to miss it. Perfect if you are really hungry.
10. Get the Dragon Breath
Not sure if anyone ever wished to get this on Christmas, but once you have the option in front of you, why not consider it. These Dragon gums will make you smoke like a dragon. The effect is possible with the liquid nitrogen used in the gums and it’s safe to try.
