The church is new and in a modern Byzantine style. It is quite well done and I found it an excellent place to sit and contemplate for ten minutes or so. At least in December, it is not particularly busy or noisy. The contrast with more traditional Byzantine churches was interesting and not as severe as that comparison is for... More

The architecture is truly weird and doesn't reflect the Albanian art. Apart of that, the church looks nice.

The church is beautiful from the outside and the inside. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Also, there is a church shop where you can buy some affordable souvenirs and/or donate money for charity. Whether you are a believer or not, you should definitely see it, especially that it is close to other famous monuments.

Unusual architecture for Tirana located on a busy street. Worth a photo or two. Think this is quite a new building.

This church is well designed and is more modern than most of the buildings around it. The interior is well decorated.

Especially the exterior of the chuch is beautiful and somewhat unusual that we have seen. The interior however did not impress us agnostics much.

We visited this place during a tour of Tirana. It is a modern building with the look of a mosque about it from the outside. Inside the mosque theme continues with a huge brass chandelier and arched balconies on either side. I liked it and it is well worth spending 10 minutes or so wandering around inside and don't forget... More

The visual is very modern, what makes it very different from other orthodox churches. From outside it calls attention. So i entered and i was quite surprised. Worth the visit if you are walking around the center of Tirana.
