A little stone bridge, that no longer seems to cross over anything. It seems a little out of place now, with major roads just around it. It did make a useful shortcut, however. It isn't specifically lit at night, but there is enough surrounding streetlight to cross safely without falling off.

This is a stone bridge from the Ottoman times (a rarity in Tirana). It was once the bridge to cross the stream that no longer runs here, but it does have historical significance so please don't dismiss it as "nothing to see, of no importance). It is slippery because the stones are so worn and with no hand rails/sides, please... More

A rare ancient structure in Tirana. Coach tours of Tirana's few sights pass by here, blink and you will miss it. It was once part of an important trading route for farmers bringing livestock from farms in the east to the markets in town. It was built in the 18th C during the ottoman era in an area populated by... More

Small random bridge surrounded by a modern concrete much larger one and by a restaurant. If for some reason its only a 5 minutes walk from your hotel, go and see it. Otherwise, no reason to go there.

on the edge of the centre and fairly well sign posted but not really any wow factor. Old ridge which people still walk on, in built up area by a road but hardly the Mostar bridge..

this little bridge looks great in the photos in brochures but the area right next to it is very run down and shows little respect for this beautiful little historic bridge

Took a bit of finding but is an amazing Ottoman stone bridge set in the midst of a bustling city. We walked along the river bank and were looking in the wrong direction.

The bridge it self is a bit off from the river, so if you are looking for the bridge along the river, you will miss it. It locate on the northern side of the river and there is nothing under it. I found it quite hard walking because of those polished stones. I think people might have fun just crossing... More

The Tanners Bridge was probably beautiful in its day. Actually, it was definitely beautiful. And it still is. But it is about 20m long and is almost hidden behind a horrible 20th century road bridge and below it is a smelly swap. I am giving it one star because when you walk half an hour to see it, it is...
