Et`hem Bey Mosque, Tirana

(4.3/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Very old mosque, symbol of the city of Tirana. It is one of the attractions to visit if you are in town. There's a cute ladies that controls the inputs of tourists (and then waits for the "donated" something before you leave). Women enter with veil (provided by the Lord) and may only enter in the Loft for children. Shoes should be left at the entrance, in a dedicated space, the floor is covered with carpets. Cute and charming. To see!

  • Beautiful Mosque in the center of Tirana! Nice to visit on daytime, but in the evening it has nice lights.
  • If u want to meet retarded people this is the right place!
  • This mosque is important for Albania because Tirana City has only one historical mosque. This Ethem Beut Mosque must see to by every visitors and turists.
  • Interesting, small, quiet space in this historic Mosque which is still in daily use. Pictures I've seen in other places show that the building got quite a kicking in the war the adjacent clock tower losing its Venetian styled top, so not sure how much is a recreation. Still well worth a look.
  • I liked this mosque so much. Walls are masterpiece. Everything is clean.
