Gjahtari – The view I could stare at forever

In of my previous articles I talked about one of my absolute favorite spots, The Artificial Lake of Tirana (check out the article).

On days when I do not feel like walking and walking in order to find the right spot to sit, I choose Gjahtari, a very simple bar at the entrance of the area. Now the name means “The hunter” and to be honest I do not know why, as there are no animals to hunt in the area.

It is nothing too fancy: it has some basic small chairs and tables and nothing more. Actually nothing more is needed when you take a look at the view. The cup of coffee is more than enough if you are lucky and find a table by the lake (I decided to show you a photo of the view of the place instead of the actual place, since everything is quite basic and the view is what makes it special).

To me personally it means a little more than that, since Gjahtari is the place me and my special someone chose for our first cup of coffee together.

Just keep in mind to visit the place on sunny days as it is an open space and rain would not be a good companion. The summer heat is of no problem — the place is covered by trees and remains quite nice even when it’s hot.
