impressive

Modern yet impressive, from the outside but also the interior. Autocephalous means autonomous, the Albanian orthodox church is independent from Greece or Russia.

Walking along the streets of central Tirana that are full of tales of yesteryear still dominate.... and then there's this place. It was so out of character that it struck home immedşately and has us crossing the road to investigate.

Beautiful architecture inside and out. Wonder mosaic within the dome. The outdoor clock tower's bells rang on the hour, with a pleasant sound.

This Orthodox Church is beautiful! It is in the center of Tirana and a light to all the people! The Priests are available if you ever want to talk about the Orthodox Faith. There is also a very big bookstore where you can buy icons, incense, books and jewelry. Must see if you come to Tirana!

Orthodox Autocephalous Church of Albania is very nice. The impressive entrance to the church will get you in more imposing the central part of a church building. In the middle is a beautiful chandelier and beautiful frescoes in the dome. Very happy to go there when it's very hot

Nothing extraordinary about it. It is just a newly built church.I was not very impressed by its architecture, then that may be because it has no history to show.

This is one of the largest Orthodox churches I have seen in this part of the world. The architecture is rather bizarre (reminds me of a huge Mormon church) and it's very modern. Worth seeing!

Stunning architecture, mosaics, and icons! Easy to access and kind staff and guards. A true example of art; and a lovely symbol of post-communist religious revival in Albania.

Light a candle and say little prayer! House of God is a place where you need to turn inside you and find a this small part in you soul which still is part of God. Regardless if you are believer or non-believer you should spend some minutes...

Stunning new erection full of stylistically 1000 year old art forms. Apparently we still know how to impress each other and the techniques have not been forgotten. Absolutely relaxing. Feel at home.
