The Palace of Culture is the large building draped with flags that you'll find on one side of the main square, looking out towards the imposing statue of Skanderbeg, the hero of Albania. Built in a minimalist, socialist fashion - not quite brutalist - on the orders of Enver Hoxha himself, architecture and history buffs will love it. Inside you can find galleries and all things cultural.

An architecturally impressive communist era building in Skenderberg Square which now houses the National Opera and the National Library of Albania. The Palace is a cool place to visit and take a photo of, even if you don't head inside. Impossible to miss when you're in the main square.

The first brick was put by Khrushchev himself then the communist leader if USSR, now the Palace of Culture hosts the Opera House of Albania, a foreign language library and offices and venue halls. At night the palace is lit with dim lights that give it a charismatic look.
