This was my first mosque I ever visited. I tell you, I was nervous to visit. But when I went inside, I was greeted by a very very kind man who welcomed us. This was a beautiful place to see. I was impressed.

The place is more than 300 years old with the old wall-paintings and decorations still existing . If youre a muslim , or want to experience a muslim feel prayer , id suggest friday special prayers at about midday.

One of the best mosques in Albania. It is build in the center of Tirana together with an icon clock at its left side. This is a relaxing place to visit. Once a hospital was built with it but later it was moved away. A place to visit.

One of the few mosques that survived the "aetheism" era of the communism regime. Worth a visit. Right in the centre of town.

Really enjoyed a visit to the beautiful little Ethem Bey Mosque right on Skenderbeg Square. Beautiful ornate interior, an oasis of calm. We were met by the caretaker who couldn't have been nicer, showing us around, making us welcome and telling us about the place as best he could despite the language barrier. A lovely place and we'll worth your... More

The mosque is very nicely decorated, with a wonderful surrounding with the main plaza of Tirana and the clock tower next to it. Especially nice at night!

An 18th century mosque with particularly beautiful mural decoration. An interesting escape from the surrounding crowdedness. Ideal to visit out of praying time in order to experience the interior undisturbed. Small and neat and very colorful.
