Et'hem Bey Mosque Tours

Et'hem Bey Mosque
This historic religious structure is one of the oldest in the nation and somehow managed to escape destruction when an atheist movement took hold in Albania during the 1960s. The structure and those who worship there have a long history of surviving turmoil, as the mosque was forced to shut its doors when communists ruled the country.

In 1992, Et’hem Bey Mosque once again opened as a place of worship against the wishes of those who were in charge. Today, it’s one of the largest and most prominent gathering places for Muslims in Albania. The mosque is known for its colorful frescoes and finely detailed interiors, making it a worthwhile stop for travelers interested in history, religion and architecture.

Practical Info

The Mosque is located in the center of Tirana in Skanderbeg Square. Travelers must take off their shoes to enter the building.
Address: Skanderbeg Square, Tirana, Albania
