Enver Hoxha Pyramid, Tirana

1.0
#6 of 15 in Sightseeing in Tirana
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Visit a distinctive landmark with historic significance at Enver Hoxha Pyramid. Formerly known as the Enver Hoxha Museum, dedicated to the country's former communist leader, today it is a conference center and exhibit venue. The building's pyramid design was a concept from Hoxha's daughter and son-in-law. Although the attraction has suffered from wear and tear, its importance in Albanian history warrants a visit. The structure is best viewed from the outside because of the poor condition inside. The distinctive shape of the building in the center of the city makes it hard to miss. Our Tirana vacation builder makes visiting Enver Hoxha Pyramid and other Tirana attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The building itself haunted but it is with the associated story. Initially comes to the mausoleum was beautiful marble-clad, and today was just a ruin. From what I was able to know the building is to be converted to a House of culture.

  • The pyramid rather than for its artistic value symbolizes the past Communist regime of Hever Hoxha. Built on a design of his daughter for a time housed the body of Communist leader boys using the ramps as a slide. The building is waiting for a new destination.

  • To establish it as an Ottoman market was demolished. It was built by the daughter and son-in-law of Hoxha, architects, in order to celebrate it with a statue and by gathering all the gifts offered by heads of State. After the fall of the dictatorship, changed several destinations, eventually becoming even disco. Now it's just an ugly building in poor condition, closed and abandoned. You can climb to see the view or to play. It would be desirable to recover it for a cognitive use of recent history.

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.
