#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Tirana
Religious Site Tourist Spot
An Eastern Orthodox church with an autonomous bishop, Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albania is not just a place of worship but a support system for the community. The church is responsible for a number of charity programs, including 17 day-care centers, a few theological schools, three elementary schools, and an orphanage. They also run professional training schools that offer classes in management and information technology. They are known for their humanitarian work with refugees and people in need, and their dedication to peace. The building is a modern complex, designed to be bright and uplifting. Enter through the large, brass doors that lead inside, and look up to see the domed ceiling decorated with reliefs and murals. Consider attending one of the regularly held services, where rituals like the dueling choirs provide a window into Albanian culture.

  • The Cathedral was rebuilt and inaugurated in 2012 to replace the one destroyed by the Communist regime to make room at the hotel Tirana. The structure is great, and is the third largest Orthodox Cathedral in Europe. Within the Christ pantocrator mosaic painter Docroniku. (The same as the front of the Museum of history of Tirana and many churches of southern Italy and Sicily. The Cathedral is dedicated to the resurrection of Christ.

  • A wonderful monument not only to the Orthodox. Inside this church but also the smallest next one can feel contrition, in contrast with the bustle of the street is dominated by heart.

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.
