Slippery rocks

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

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.
