After decades of repressed religion, Albania reawakes as a mulit-religious country. Newly built churches are part of this - just like this beautiful building in a prominent space.

A grand building. Still under construction or reconstruction when I visited. I did not see any sort of written guide, which would be helpful to those not familiar with Orthodox architecture.

Interiour reminding of a mosque. Also the bell tower seems inspired by minarets. Very modern exteriour lines. Well worth a short visit.
