The pyramid of Tirana was once a museum about the life of former communist leader Enver Hoxha, designed by his daughter. Since shutting many years ago, the pyramid has become a derelict eyesore but also an important symbol of the city. Now you will find the pyramid run down, with children climbing and sliding down the sides of the structure.

Piramida is one of the most popular landmarks in the Albanian capital, however it's also probably one of the ugliest ones at the same time. It seems to be especially popular among kids who love to climb all the way to top of it. Piramida used to be a museum dedicated to Enver Hoxha.

To some an eyesore, to others the quintessential symbol of Albania's struggle with its communist past. Iconic but in disrepair. Still a flashpoint among locals as the debate continues regarding the future of this monstrosity / treasure. The people watching here is excellent. The more adventurous traveler can scale to the top for a nice view of the city.

A venue for many conventions and art events and quite possibly the ugliest landmark in Europe. This photo doesn't really do it justice, in the reverse sense, up close, it's so, so much uglier. But I had to swing there and have a lookie haha

Questo museo è dedicato al dittatore albanese Enver Hoxha. E' la costruzione più costosa dell'intera Albania ma tutt'ora inutilizzata a causa di diatribe interne sulla sua destinazione d'uso. In compenso i graffittari l'hanno ornata di tutti i colori.

La Pirámide de Tirana es un monumento que no pasa desapercibido en el centro de la ciudad. No es lindo, pero es intrigante, por su historia y por su presente. Lo mandaron a construir los hijos del fallecido dictador Enver Hoxha en su memoria en 1988. Sería su mausoleo, con la caída del comunismo fue discoteca, centro de conferencias y comando de operaciones de la Otan en la guerra de Kosovo. Ahora luce abandonado, algunos turistas sacan fotos y varios jóvenes andan en skate en el playón que lo rodea.
