Hi All, traveling into Tirana and i need to find the best and/or easy way to get to Skopje. Is there a specific bus to take? how long will take? name of the bus company? do i need reservation? how much it costs? or how much a private car cost? Any suggestions and recommendations would be greatly appreciated
The bus is the cheapest way from Tirana to Skopje. if you check in this website somebody gave the hour of departure and of arrival.
It cost me 10 euros on the Polet bus from the muddy square next to the train station. If you are going to Ohrid, you'll have to get off at Struga and continue from there. I got a taxi the rest of the way - it only cost 5 euros. It's a beautiful journey, but very slow, and it goes via Durres, which is in completely the wrong direction.

thank you so much
Please don't rent a car there. It will cause you a heart-attack ;)
