4.3
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Tirana
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.

  • By was nothing special. To enter are as thick as I entered I went out. If you're accompanied by a lady, they complicate it you even more.

  • One of the epic places to be visited in Tirana. This mosque was built in 1793 by a Molla Bey of Petrela. It is a cultural monument which has survived the dictatorial regime between 1945 to 1991 years. During this period Albania was the unique atheist state. Interior was painted by Venetian masters. Pleased to have this masterpiece in Albania.
  • Awesome ottoman empire mosque architecture. And great acoustic sound i side.
  • Oldest mosque in Tirana, survived the communist era. Still active for salah, Jamah etc. Has whudu facilities and also ladies prayer room.
