    Loving this series! Thanx for sharing. Next time ask right people and they will truly help you find even more hidden gems (no not malls ?). Also if you come back to Kosovo I’d truly recommend Rugova (Peje) the mountains are unbelievable, the cleanest air and water you’ll experience 🙂 cheers!

    The Pyramid was built as a museum/shrine to dictator Enver Hoxha housing all of his memorabilia and belongings (kind of like a modern-day Pharaoh). I remember going there as a kid when it opened as a museum. It was very grand and ornate with red carpeting and roundabout architecture with an open center. I think it had 3 stories and each told a chapter of the story of Hoxha's life through objects belonging to him (army uniform, books, gun etc.) and the Communist party. I think in the 90s it became a dance club and then a convention center and now seems abandoned.

    It is absolutely an important tourist attraction. As a symbol of a notorious communism, it resisted some attempts to be destroyed by previous governments. But it is still there, unrestored, a symbol of the mixed and contradictory history of Tirana. It was inaugurated on October 14, 1988, as the mausoleum of the dictator, Enver Hoxha. The pyramid form was designed by a group of architects led by the daughter and son-in-law of the dictator. Construction began in 1986 and ended in 1988. It did indeed serve as a mausoleum for Hoxha, until 1991, after which it became a conference and fair centre.

    It took its name—The Pyramid—during the student revolt of December 1990, both from its form but also as a symbol of dictatorship. Today, it is officially known as the Pjeter Arbnori International Cultural Centre, and stands out as a remarkable piece of architecture and legacy from communism.

    It is not a museum and you can walk around outside it any time of day or night. You can even climb to the top of it. Many children use it as a slide.
