Nowhere are the dramatic changes in the Balkans more visible than in the Albanian capital city. No country was as isolated from the rest of the world as Albania, where communism was to be created in its purest form. Then the socialist economic system collapsed and a mass exodus took place. No city in the Balkans grew as fast as Tirana in the past decade, and no other city has changed as much since 2000.
