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.

  • set close to the 'grand canal' the wee ottoman bridge is a good example of many around Albania and easy to see in Tirana 
  • Staff is staying in an area called the remote from the square, but transportation is very easy. It is advisable to be seen because a beautiful silhouette.

  • A small bridge through through here a couple of centuries ago the Creek. In terms of architecture, uniquely worthy to be called a landmark. Looking at him, and remembering the national hero of Albania, Scanderbeg, I mentally transferred to his eldest brother Mesi bridge that is located 10 km from Shkodra.
