The new Orthodox Church is quite beautiful - inside and out. I highly recommend taking several pictures of the church. Also, the priests are quite friendly and will answer any questions that you have about the Orthodox faith.

We happened upon a service in this lovely church. I had never seen an Orthodox service before and the quiet pageantry, the dual choirs and the obvious faith of those attending made this a truly lovely experience.

This church is brand new! Very modern, clean lines, striking to see in the center of Tirana. We visited in the evening just before closing and it was very serene and peaceful. Worth a stop even if you're not religious if only for the peace and quiet and to enjoy the beauty.

How wonderful for the city to have a new beautiful new church after the fall of the anti-religious regime. It is elegant and inviting and worth a brief stop if you are not here to pray.

I was there with my lady as she is Orthodox. The place is brand new and the church has been builded newly. Additionally, during the church was builded, the best workers of Tirana have been worked in the construction. Definitely worth to visit!

Apart from the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow, this is the first NEW Orthodox church I've visited. It is very different from the older, more traditional churches - bright & truely beautiful without the slightly oppressive feel I associate with Orthodoxy. The mosaic work is superb. It's near to Skanderbeg Square so don't miss it!

My local friend took me here. We didn't stay long because it was late afternoon, but we prayed and enjoyed the love and care that was put into this holy place.

It is actually owned by the "Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albania" and named "The Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ". I do not know why your reader says its not in Tirana, its massive and only 1 block away from the Skelenburg statue. It is a very impressive building in gold and white with an amazingly designed clock and bell... More
