The city’s must-see National Art Gallery hosts an excellent and varied collection of Albanian art covering a wide range of styles, tastes and historical periods. The permanent exhibition shows works by some of the country’s earliest artists, whilst upstairs are some outstanding examples of Socialist Realist paintings depicting heroic partisans and idealised factory workers bristling with muscles and grinning with socialist satisfaction, all of it produced between 1944 and 1990 when even the size of the canvas and subject matter were dictated by the Party. On the top floor find examples of contemporary modern art, and, around the back of the building, a clutch of Communist-era monuments and some large statues of Lenin and Stalin wrapped in protective plastic.


Open 10:00-18:00. Closed Mon, Tue.
