Tirana Railway Station was the central railway hub of Tirana, Albania. The railway was connected to other cities in Albania including Vlorë and Durrës.[1] The railway station is said to have no luggage office.[2]

On 2 September 2013 the Tirana station was closed for passenger and freight transport, as it should be demolished to make room for a new boulevard that will lead over the station area to the north. A completely new district will be created. In the northwestern district of Tirana Lapraka a new station will be built, which is planned as a multi-functional terminal for railway, tram and bus. Until his opening, the railway transport between Tirana and Vorë remains closed. [3]
