Postbllok means Checkpoint, and this simple memorial in a park in the centre of Tirana represents the oppression suffered during the communist era. At the memorial, you can find one of the thousands of Albanian bunkers, alongside a small section of concrete supports that were taken from a mine and former labour camp. There's also a piece of the original Berlin Wall, demonstrating the suffering endured by millions across Europe, and not just in Albania. It's a simple but humbling memorial.

Postbllok is a fragment of the Berlin wall in a small park in Tirana. There is a bunker next to it as well and the pillars brought from a former Communist prison. Not much to do here but it's worth taking a look.
