Et`hem Bey Mosque, Tirana

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.

  • History of this Mosque goes back to 300 years and this is the only Mosque that isn't destroid in communist Albania. Worth a visit.
  • - A must-do while in Tirana - No entry fee or something and really beautiful inside - make sure you take off your shoes
  • Beautiful Mosque in the center of Tirana! Nice to visit on daytime, but in the evening it has nice lights.
  • The oldest mosque in Tirana!
  • 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.

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.
