  • Many consider Albania to be an exclusively Muslim country, but in fact, one third of the population converts to Christianity and does not feel that bad. The Cathedral of Shkodra stands immediately where the church was located several years ago, and was destroyed by the Ottomans during the invasion of the Balkans. Only in the 19th century, the Christian community was able to obtain permission to restore the building and began to raise funds. Obviously, a lot of money was raised, because the cathedral was too large, capable of accommodating more than six thousand people.

  • The church is not much to see but it has an interesting history and if you’re in town it’s worth a stop. Do t miss the ceiling.  more »
