The bell itself, created from bullet casings collected by children, is a nice sentiment. Sadly the surrounding wall has been defaced with graffiti, and the site (beside the decaying Hoxha pyramid) is far from ideal.

It's really scruffy and rather ugly. However, it is nice story that it was made with melted down bullets after the violent troubles of the 90's Albanian financial meltdown. That makes it noteworthy. So as a symbol, it does have meaning.

Next ro Hoxha Pyramid and easy to reach. Nothing special, but worth to visit when taking walk tour in the city.

The peace bell is set in a main square and highlights the journey last millenium to the next. A bridge takes you past the bell which is made from old bullet casings.

This bell was made of used bullet shells. It is supposed to be symbolic. There is a narrow piece of wood to walk across and you can ring the bell for peace.

Created from the casings of old bullets by a priest from Italy in 1990's. It is a worthy example of what can be achieved.
