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.

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.

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. The interiors are equally... More

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.
