Interesting history

Admittedly it is only a bridge but the history that goes along with it makes it well worth visiting.

This bridge somewhat located in an unexpected place mainly because it is hemmed in between regular building and the river was diverted by the communists is a relic of the past.

Not much to say about it - one of the few old historic remnants in Tirana - unceremoniously adjacent to a main road and over a litter-strewn stream
