Et`hem Bey Mosque, Tirana

4.3
#1 of 7 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.

    It was the first time the "custodian" of the mosque invited me in and taking pictures. Mainly for it's very good. Of rest is a mosque like so many others with nothing special

    If you don't know a mosque worth visiting, has some beautiful frescoes. The ladies must be covered is a place of prayer.

    Small mosque, very nice and free visit. Espeeis a visit of 30', can't you just be 5' but it is very beautiful and curious to see. It's worth the time.

    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.

    Beautiful Mosque in the center of Tirana! Nice to visit on daytime, but in the evening it has nice lights.

    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.

    This mosque is a must see spot of Tirana! It holds a lot of history in it!

    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.

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.
