Even without knowing the story behind the bell's making, it makes an interesting worth passing-by view. Seeing local youth climbing on the wall beside it and kicking it, makes the turbulent times during which it was cast resound more clearly.

Careful - the "Pyramid" is a lot easier to climb up than it is to get back down - but it's one of those things the young and young-at-heart can't resist

Shells spent during the unrest in the 1990s then melted down is an excellent idea for a Peace Bell. The surrounding area and square is quite modern then you come upon this Bell and the Hoxha Pyramid built in the Communist era. I did not quite figure out why it had been erected where it is but hopefully it will... More

The concept of children collecting the used cartridges of shells to create the bell is lovely but the park in which this bell is situated is dirty and neglected and the bell surrounds are covered in graffiti. A shame as it could be a rather pleasant park.

There is a poignant reason for this bell. Shell casings from the war in the 1990s were used to cast this bell. However, it is in an obscure place and you can easily miss it! It is permissible to ring the bell.

What should have been an inspiring millennium monument to promote peace, has been transferred into a not-maintained and rotten wall with a bell. A missed opportunity ... :-(

School children collected the material to make this peace bell from bullet shells. It is set just in front of the decrepit monument of communist dictator enver Hoxha. Symbolic.

I really liked the monument and the decrepit-looking Hodxa pyramid that it stands in front of. The square surrounding it is quite modern, so the contrast between the old Communist aesthetic and the advent of the modern world is quite pleasant.
