Favorite 10: In Tirana with Hygerta Sako

With a screen presence that has spanned more than two decades, Hygerta Sako, former Miss Albania and TV Show host, knows Tirana like the back of her hand. Below, she tells us where she relaxes and truly enjoys herself around the capital.

Favorite Café

In general, I like to have my morning coffee in the company of my parents or close friends at Favola Snack Bar, a nice place near my home.


Skanderbeg Square. It has always been and continues to be the most popular and well-known reference point.

Random Spot

The New Bazaar in Tirana. Because it’s out of my way, in terms of my daily routine, if you see me there, you can be sure it is because I like it so much and not for any other motive!

Guilty Pleasure

My most pleasurable hours of the day are those spent with my daughter, Ania. In the evenings, we often go the cinema together.

Culture Spot

I try to catch as many plays at the theater and ballet performances. There are plenty of great ones in Tirana.
