Contributor and pilot DronAlb created this marvelous aerial overview of Tirana, the capital city of Albania. The city lies a bit west of the geographic center of the Balkan country, still some distance from the Adriatic coastline. Like much of the country, it is surrounded by mountains and hills. Founded in the early 17th century, Tirana has seen its tourism grow since the civil war in the former Yugoslavia (immediately to Albania's north) subsided. The city is home to about 600,000 Albanians.
