City & Food Tour of Tirana in One Day

19 reviews
Explore Tirana, the capital of Albania, through a culinary lens. Visit architectural and cultural landmarks such as Skanderbeg Square, the New Bazaar, and Blloku, a bustling, now-trendy neighborhood that was once restricted to communist party members. Along the way, enjoy breakfast, lunch, coffee, and raki, a strong, Grappa-like beverage made with star anise and local fruits.

The peace bell is by the big Hoxha dome. It's interesting enough I guess as a piece of sculpture commemorating history however the dome is decaying and the surrounding park area full of litter (we found litter a huge issue in Albania). Also be aware that street beggars may approach you near here.

We were taken to this bell by our guide during Tirana free tour. It was made from about 20 thousand melted shell casings collected by Albanian children after the period of domestic unrest in the late 1990s. Its sound should be a reminder to the people that such things should not happen again.

....but it has a deeper meaning. The bell stands opposite the Enver Hohxa's monster pyramid. Unfortunately, it is not well marked, so probably many miss it, as they look towards the pyramid. The bell was cast of bullet cartridges fired at rebelled people at the end of 20 century during Albanian civil unrest. Ironically, it stands opposite the dictator's pyramid, built to house a museum for his "achievements".

What the bell represents is the crucial thing - not the bell itself. It represents hope and peace and for all of those who were caught up in the most recent war, peace could not come soon enough.
