This Orthodox churh has a fantastic impression. It is proof that Albanians are believers - the church was consecrated recently.

Having seen hundreds of Orthodox churches in Greece and elsewhere, it's really hard to give a rating to this church. I would classify it as "extreme kitch" on the outside, though parts of the inside were ok. You can't miss it, and it's worth having a look at - if anything, it's definitely unique.

The Orthodox Cathedral is situated in the middle of downtown Tirana. Construction of the new Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ is almost complete. The church dome is designed with a great gold Byzantine cross that is being built by a Greek-American firm. The building project also includes construction of a synod building, conference center.

Too big, modern, gold-plated, gaudy, dare I say kitschy for my taste. Nothing interesting about this. Evidently an attempt to be bigger and more imposing than the mosque in almost the same spot on the other side of the square.

Christian modern church in the center of Tirana. Particularly interesting to Christian believers. Certainly worth a visit.

A great place to visit, worship, and/or just sit quietly and relax and enjoy the peace and serenity. Visit during Orthodox Easter for a real treat!

It is a newly built Church. So nothing very special. You appreciate the ones that withstood the test of time more.

It was a great orthodox church, interesting on the outside as inside. Although it was a new church it had a good spiritual aura.

I liked the way the architect went all the way with the modernistic design of this orthodox church. Magnificently done. Should be some time before the walls are ready to be painted.
