Tiranë / Tiran

Tirana is mentioned in Venetian documents in 1418, one year after the Ottoman conquest of the area: “…the resident Pjeter, son of late Domenik from the village of Tirana…”. Records of the first land registrations under the Ottomans in 1431–32 show that Tirana consisted of 60 inhabited areas, with nearly 2,028 houses and 7,300 inhabitants.
