School children collected the material to make this peace bell from bullet shells. It is set just in front of the decrepit monument of communist dictator enver Hoxha. Symbolic.

I really liked the monument and the decrepit-looking Hodxa pyramid that it stands in front of. The square surrounding it is quite modern, so the contrast between the old Communist aesthetic and the advent of the modern world is quite pleasant.

Why make a monument and let it get into a bad state,this seems to happen all over Tirana,the bell is made from melted bullet/shell cases but it's just left in a run down part of town.

The concept and intention behind the bell is definitely heart touching but unfortunately this is not worth the effort for the fact that the whole surrounding and the bell is not impressive enough to make you travel to the place. The location is right along the Enver Hoxha pyramid and just like the pyramid, this too lacks an appeal and... More

The bell must be placed in a better place given its significance rather than in the rundown area opposite the Enver Hoxha pyramid. Like so many other sights in Tirana we could have easily missed it. The whole area is in disrepair and unsavory characters and panhandlers abound. Still its worth a visit to see the Pyramid of the erstwhile... More

This bell has powerful representations (melted bullet/shell casings) but the setting is overwhelmed by the Enver Hoxha Pyramid. The grounds are in varying states of decay (as is much of Tirana) and I'd advise caution walking around if you're unsteady on your feet. There's a walkway where you can walk under the bell on your way to the Pyramid. I'd... More

Great reason for it but it is almost invisible in the setting. We nearly missed it if it weren't for a couple of young people jumping to try to ring the bell.

The Peace Bell is constructed from melted down bullets, and strung up above an empty pond next to a (poorly) graffitied concrete wall. There is a walkway underneath the bell, you can take a run up and jump and try to swing the heavy bell to make it ring. The square where it is located is full of broken concrete... More
