This is a wonderful example of new Orthodox architecture. It is conveniently located next to the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Tourism and about a block from the Taiwan restaurant complex. Its a quick visit and like Skanderberg Square a great navigation point in the city since you can see the spire from many locations in the downtown city center.

Even if you are not a big religious person, you could still make a trip to the church, being not far from the Skanderbeg square and other attractions. The best part about the church is definitely the architecture that looks so elegant yet different and simple from the usual gothic based architectures common to other churches.

New Orthodox church just off Skanderbeg Square--beautiful architecture, mosaics, use of light & space. Serene inside; small chapel and bell tower adjacent. Well worth the walk to see it--recommend evening before it gets totally dark.

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!

Very modern and a brief visit is okay. Local citizens have donated monies to refurbish this church. Location in the heart of Tirana
