Tirana is the capital and largest city as well as the political, economic and cultural center. It was originally built in 1614, and was appointed to be the capital in 1920. During the Second World War, it is the significant center of National Liberation Movement. Scanderbeg Statue and Ancient Mosque in the city center are the landmark buildings in Tirana. Here there are three universities, academies of scientists, cultural palaces, history museums and international culture center. The Rinas Airport is the only international airport all over the country.
Durres, the second largest city, lies in the shore of Adriatic Sea. Here its biggest seaport handles 90 percent of maritime transportation. First constructed in 627 BC, it is one of the oldest cities in the country. This city in its long history has several times destroyed in earthquake and then rebuilt. Now it preserves the cultural relics of ancient city wall and Colosseum.
