Et`hem Bey Mosque, Tirana
(3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Visit the site of an event that marked a historic moment for Albanian religious freedom at Et`hem Bey Mosque. The centrally located mosque had been closed by the communists, but in 1991, 10,000 worshippers entered the mosque for a service and the police didn't stop them. Enter the mosque to see mosaic trees, bridges, and waterfalls in vibrant colors. You must remove your shoes before entering the space; shoulders must be covered, and women must cover their hair. Put Et`hem Bey Mosque at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tirana trip itinerary maker.
