Tirana

Orthodox Cathedral

  Rr. Ibrahim Rugova 1      +355 4 225 72 61     19 Jun 2022
The 'Resurrection of Christ' Orthodox Cathedral, the third largest in Europe, was consecrated in 2012 and has a 32-metre high dome and a separate 46-metre high bell tower with with 16 bells and four symbolic candles symbolising the evangelists who proclaimed Christ's resurrection. Below the frescoed main space, there's a large hall for meetings and conferences, and a small museum. To see it at its best, make a visit after dark when the entire structure lights up like a Las Vegas casino. Note that, unlike in for example the Orthodox churches of Russia, where the congregation stands, this building is full of seating.
