Walked outside and took lots of pictures. The building is beautiful and the walk at night is brilliant and is easy to access among the city street.

I think is the biggest orthodox church in Albania. Is the place for the soul to find his peace and hope.

This Cathedral is absolutely incredible, a really modern design but it screams at you as you walk past, and you can't really ignore it. A definite must see!

The church is new and in a modern Byzantine style. It is quite well done and I found it an excellent place to sit and contemplate for ten minutes or so. At least in December, it is not particularly busy or noisy. The contrast with more traditional Byzantine churches was interesting and not as severe as that comparison is for... More

The architecture is truly weird and doesn't reflect the Albanian art. Apart of that, the church looks nice.

The church is beautiful from the outside and the inside. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Also, there is a church shop where you can buy some affordable souvenirs and/or donate money for charity. Whether you are a believer or not, you should definitely see it, especially that it is close to other famous monuments.

Unusual architecture for Tirana located on a busy street. Worth a photo or two. Think this is quite a new building.
