As it's name suggests this the country's top art gallery. It houses artwork from the pre-communist era up until the present day. The jewel in the crown of the gallery's collection are the socialist realist paintings from the communist period. These are often enormous paintings depicted in bright, vivid colours and are well worth a visit.2 Et'hem Bey Mosque and Clock Tower
Et'hem Bey Mosque is a charming eighteenth century building filled with frescoes and mosaics. If you want to get a feel for the religious life of Albania then it's the perfect place to pay a quick visit. The clock tower next door allows you to climb to the top for a small fee. The view takes in the whole city as well as the nearby mountains.3 Skanderbeg Castle, Kruje
If you make the short trip from Tirana to Kruje then you can visit Skanderbeg Castle. This was the stronghold that Albania's national hero, Skanderbeg, used to defend the country from the Ottomans in the 15th century. It has a museum built onto it with exhibits showing the Albanians early struggles for independence.4 Kinema Millenium
This cinema is situated in the gardens of the former residence of King Zog, modern Albania's first and so far only constitutional monarch. The gardens are partly maintained in the style they were kept in the 1920s and '30s when King Zog was resident, though they have been slightly modernised. As well as being able to go and see a film, there is a restaurant where you can get something to eat in the pleasant, relaxing surroundings.5 Enver Hoxha Pyramid
This interesting, and huge, example of brutalist architecture was originally built to be a mausoleum for Enver Haxha, one of the country's communist-era dictators. It stands as a monument to a past that is rapidly declining in the rest of the city. It's worth seeing before Tirana's authorities decide to tear it down.
