Until the 20th century, Albania stayed part of the Ottoman empire until in 1912 it declared its independence. In 1920 Tirana became the temporary capital city until 1925, when it became permanent. During the second World War, Albania was occupied by the Italians and Germans. In 1944 it was liberated by the Communists from the Communist Party which was founded in 1941 in Tirana. After the fall of Communism in 1991 it took a long time before the centrally planned economy was turned into a market economy.
