Clock Tower, Tirana

3.0
#5 of 15 in Sightseeing in Tirana
Landmark Tourist Spot
Climb to the top of Clock Tower for rewarding views of the city center. Although its clock face has been replaced multiple times over the years, the tower remains one of the most historically significant structures in the city. It was built and designed by the same man who designed the Et'hem Bey Mosque, Haxhi Et'hem Bey. A small museum next to the tower displays a few items of tradition clothing and tools. Tour this first, then the museum attendant will unlock the tower for you to climb. A set of 90 spiral steps takes you to the viewing level. Admission to the attraction is free.

  • It's situated in Tirana, Skanderbeg square, the main town, alongside the et'hem Bey mosque. It was built starting in 1821, thanks to grants of the wealthy families of Tirana. In 1928 he was raised to 35 metres and in the Summit was the clock that gives it its name. It suffered damage during World War II, but was quickly rebuilt.

  • Located near the Centre of the city of Tirana Skanderbeg square. To mosque jamia et close of the n should Scout next door was in a separate building. Near no building is too high, so is the clock tower of the ordinary, but we stood out comparatively.

Where to stay in Tirana

All areas of Tirana boast accommodation at various price points. Hostels and hotels housed in Communist buildings dot the city center and immediate surroundings. As with the rest of Albania, prices here are generally low, and you can find even better deals as you move away from the city center. The tourism industry is fairly new in Tirana and the country as a whole, but you’ll be welcomed warmly by hospitable staff eager to show off their freshly post-Communist nation.
