Tanners' Bridge, Tirana

#7 of 15 in Sightseeing in Tirana
Bridge Landmark
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.

  • We did walk the broken pavement littered with garbage to see the bridge; there is really nothing to see today. Read about the history, save yourself the walk :)  more »
  • Much of Tirana's sights are located close to the city center, much like this bridge. Not much of a bridge. Visit as you walk about. Not worth making any special effort to visit.  more »
  • A not overly old bridge set amongst modern buildings. Only worth visiting as part of walking tour and not worth special trip.  more »

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.
