Ismail Kadare's House
2.5
About
The home of the world-famous Albanian writer, Ismail Kadare, has been turned into a museum, and is open to the public. This is where Ismail Kadare was born and spent his childhood. The house will be familiar to everyone who has read his book ‘Chronicle in Stone”, in which Kadare describes every corner of this house. As you visit the house you can imagine Kadare as a little boy, sitting close to the windows and witnessing the terrors of World War II. The house was first built in 1799, and classified as a Cultural Monument in 1991. Recently the building was repaired and rehabilitated under the auspices of UNESCO and Albanian’s Ministry of Culture. The Museum was opened to the public on 28 January 2018, on the occasion of Kadare’s 80th birthday. Kadare House is in the middle of the historical Palorto neighborhood and easy to find. Inside the house are some original objects belonging to the family. The entrance fee is 200 leke.

It is the reconstructed house of the famous Albanian writer Ismail Kadare. After a fire that burned the whole house to the ground in 1997, the house is now being fully reconstructed. But unfortunately it misses personal objects and information of the writer and his family.
