“Clock Tower for a sight view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great sight view of Tirana from the old tower. Near by the center you get a clue about the city. You have to pay 1.5 eur ticket to enter

“Right in the center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

A nice tower you see as you walk along the green parks in the city center.
It is a nice location for an evening relaxation snack.

“just a clock tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

just a clock tower next to the mosque, nothing special...not worth going to at all as a pedestrian due to the traffic..

“Great View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you are visiting Tirana, it would be a real pity not to spend 100leke (70 cent) climbing the Clock Tower. There is no tour, no museum, nothing too remarkable about the tower - butt he view from the top is well worth the effort. You see the surrounding city and mountains, Skanderbeg Square and the Ethem Bey Mosque, it is quite good to do on your first day to orientate yourself.

“Nothing Special Here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

There really aren't a whole lot, if any, real great tourist sites in Tirana, and the clock tower, in my opinion is no exception. Nothing unusual about the clock as the astronomical clock in Prague or the clock tower in Munich. The clock doesn't draw a crowd by ringing on the hour and has no "show" such as dancers or unique clock works. For Tirana it was OK, but I would only go to it if I were nearby to begin with.
