“A kiosk in front of the pyramid building selling cheapest pizza slices in the city”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I saw the pyramid on the way back from the Sky Tower visit. I found it unique and interesting. I did not have time but saw a kiosk across the pyramid selling pizza and baked sweets. I bought a pizza slice for 70lek (.50€ cent) and other sweets are the similar price. It was most satisfying moment I ate it in the park. I think you can just buy something in the kiosk and watch what the people doing at the pyramid to make you have a good outside lunch time.

“An Eyesore”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This Communist relic of the past is an eyesore and should be demolished to make way for something more... liberating and democratic. Nevertheless, it is a good reminder of a system that didn't work and shouldn't be repeated again.

“Bad condition...but with a reason. Great place”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Ok, this place is in bad condition, btu with a strong reason. The municipality try to destroy the buildin, so this is the reason for ne invertments in here, but the locals are fighting with the municipality, and they are against the destruction of the building. Very nice thing, Ok, it reminds you about the communism....but this si not a bad thing. The children have to see this and to know their history.
With minimum of investments this building should became the number one attraction in the city.
You can climb until the top, but be careful whe you get down

“5 stars only for historical value.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The pyramid is one of the landmarks of Tirana. Until revently has been functional with different cultural and business activities like showrooms etv. However the truth is that it has been left in a poor state and is in serious need of renovation and work to get back in a acceptable consition. Great architecture but otherwise has nothing to offer. Easy to find as it is situated on the main boulevard.

“So sad to see the conditon”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I was quite shocked to see the pyramid like a ruin. It was already bad a few years ago, but nothing compared to today. Again, I can understand that the locals are not keen to remember the times of Enver Hoxha, but like it or not- it's a part of their history they cannot extinguish by neglecting it that way.
