Good choice to translate it. "Molla" is a sweet little word all Albanians love. I think it's a good marketing move. Heck, we already know the fruit-brand works well in english.

It is good for taxes as well. If the name is in a language other then Albanian you pay more.

actually, peeps, this is most likely NOT a legitimate apple store..sorry for disappointing all you hopefuls.
Haha, love the translation. Molla sounds better to me rather than Apple.

Great to see Apple in Albania. Looking forward to when McDonald's arrives, NOT.

Why we cann't be happy that we have smth new and nice in our city but we have to take care if is leggitime Apple store or no. I think you have to be more interested in the products because those i am sure that are not produced in Albania or assembled in Allbania.

in fact, peeps, it is a legitimate Apple store. you can get all manner of Mac computers, iPods, iPhones, iTouch and all the other gadgets to go with it and, thankfully, you can get your Mac products serviced there, as I had to do with my Macbook. it ain't cheap, but it's real.

50 Ways to Make Some Money

The death of communism in Albania brought a flourishing market economy to life just as it did across Central Europe and Russia. On the streets of Tirana people are buying and selling, trading goods and services in predictable, or sometimes novel, ways. The shops are the most obvious expression of this. The streets are lined with little stores selling almost everything you could want. Freed from the choking grip of state bureaucracy Albanians are now at liberty to buy whatever they can afford. No matter how absurd the demand, someone will create the supply. Hence the preponderance of shoe stores in this city of muddy streets and torn up footpaths. Especially outlandish is the fashion for high heeled white boots - about as impractical a style of footware as could be imagined. Dotted across the city are the market stalls, sometimes just one person selling bananas, elsewhere a whole street lined with sellers of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and spices.

Welcome

Welcome to Our Man in Tirana. I moved to Tirana, capital of Albania, in October 2005 and left in October 2007. This blog is a mix of photographs, reports, links, impressions and, undoubtedly, prejudices relating to the city and the country.

Since I am no longer in Tirana I am no longer updating this blog. However, there are over 300 posts covering this two year period and I hope that they are still of some interest.

So if you are curious about Albania or if you are planning to visit I hope this blog will be of value.

Petrela Castle

This is Petrela Castle near Tirana. The site has been fortified since the 4th century, but the oldest surviving parts are from the 13th century. Today the castle is a restaurant where you can enjoy lunch while taking in the views.
