You have to look rather well, otherwise you would easily miss this monument. One of the very few remains of Ottoman Albania, that explains the attention.

The little stone bridge seems to have been lovingly kept. We walked over it three times to visit a nearby money exchange. It might be dangerous in wet weather--there are no rails on the sides.

Old bridge which can be walked over (locals use it as a shortcut). Pretty enough to photograph if you're in the area. The river it flowed over has long since been diverted.

With the new improvements made in the area it looks much nicer. Whenever the entire project is finished it will be a great thing to see.

I gave this a "poor" rating, not because there's anything inherently wrong with it - it's a tiny historic bridge - but as an attraction? No, unless you're the world's biggest fan of tiny stone bridges. If however, you are accompanying the world's biggest fan of tiny stone bridges and you don't want to waste one minute of your life...

Awesome for the history buff. Not so much for the average person. Please be careful, even when dry, the rocks are still slippery.

Well, it doesn't go anywhere. Seasonally, it doesn't have any water under it. The Lana River was re-canalized away from this piece of Ottoman stone work. Once, just about everything was foot traffic with hand carts. Miracle it survived.

Technically there is not much to this stone bridge that dates back to the ottoman times but if you are a history person, then surely you can visit the place for its history value. But I my opinion even that is not as alluring as it should be as this was just a bridge that used to see heavy traffic.... More

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
