Tirana was founded in 1614 by Sulejman Pasha of Mulleti. The city experienced significant growth at the beginning of the 18th century and was proclaimed Albania’s capital in 1920. Soon after this, when under Italian influence, the centre of the city changed with the appearance of large boulevards and classically designed Government buildings. Today Tirana is the most populated city in Albania and the political and economic centre of the country.
