Veliaj wishes Summer Day: I hope the sun warms Albania and our hearts

Thousands of citizens of all ages, coming not only from Tirana, but also from the districts or from abroad, have become part of the many celebrations organized in the streets and squares of the capital for Summer's Day.

The mayor of Tirana Erion Veliaj also joined the celebration, who wished the citizens to always have spring in their hearts.

"My heart is filled with pain today when I look at all the citizens of Tirana, they came from all districts, they came from Kosovo, North Macedonia and Montenegro. I am really happy when I see an infinity of tourists. It means that the tourism season in Tirana has started before the tourist season. So we are preparing by looking at the hotels as well. Today we met some of the French hotels that are opening in Tirana. We have 40% more reservations than we had in years. It means that we are expecting an extraordinary season for Tirana. I want to thank all the media colleagues and all the colleagues who are dealing with the entertainment in the city today. I know it's a day off for most. But for you and some of us it is a working day. I really hope that there will be a moment of pause for you too, to bring your children and families out. I am glad that today hundreds of thousands of people in many stations, starting from "Pazar i Ri" to "Zoo", definitely "Dëshmorët e Kombit" boulevard, the two main squares Mother Teresa and "Skënderbej" square, then the Lake and all the spaces. I pray to God that there is spring in everyone's heart. The moment everyone has spring in their heart, in their head, in their family, there will be spring for the whole country. I know that we have gone through some difficult situations, but clearly as the weather shows us after every downpour, a beautiful and warm sun comes and I hope that the sun will warm our Albania, our hearts and all the plans we have for the future. Many thanks and happy holiday", said Veliaj.
