Tanners' Bridge, Tirana

(2.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Walk across the Tanners' Bridge to experience a piece of history. When the bridge was built in the 18th century, it connected the agricultural land, and its livestock, to the leathercraftsmen and butchers in the city. Farmers would lead herds of domestic animals to the butchers across the bridge. Today the stone bridge connects two sections of the capital city and supports people instead of animals. It is a rare example of Ottoman engineering that still stands in the city. Use caution when walking across the bridge, as the stones can be slippery.

  • No attraction-just an old bridge. The value of the only historical, while visually total disappointment. Neither is big or nice or useful. Definitely nothing will happen, if you skip the "attraction".
