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

This was a very beautiful church, but undergoing a remodel or cleaning as there was scaffolding all along the walls inside

There was nothing to dislike. Architecturally, it was appropriate for its purpose. Large and imposing and very modern when compared to typical orthodox churches which are dark. It is well situated to the center of Tirana. The bell tower was very imposing especially at night when its four candelabra on high dimmed and then brightened in sequence.

We stop in most churches we see in Europe and this one was no exception. They are almost all beautiful inside as was this one. After a while it becomes somewhat expected and what was once thought of as magnificient is now thought of as normal. It amazes me all the money that goes into making these churches so beautiful,...

Beautiful church and worth the visit. Although there are many Orthodox churches all over the world, and at some point people do feel they look the same, 25 years ago they did not exist as a place of worship in Albania, which makes it pretty special to see.
