This concrete bunker is one of the few to be found in the Tirana city centre. It's a leftover from the Hoxha dictatorship when thousands were built across the country. Found in a central park, this bunker has become a memorial to the dark days of isolationism under his rule, and if you join a walking tour of the city, you'll likely be brought here, to hear tales of paranoia and militarism from your guide.

Like an old communist house but totally capitalised by young crowds and dancing music.

Molti degli antichi bunker della guerra sono stati riorganizzati come caffè e souvenir. Tra questi ne spiccano due che invece sono stati utilizzati per un progetto molto interessante:
Progetto Bunk’Art All’interno di spazi stretti e gallerie sotterranee lunghissime sono stati raccolti oggetti, fotografie, armi e cimeli di un tempo, utilizzati dalla polizia di partito.
Bunk’Art 2 E' il secondo dei due bunker. E' stato adibito a grande museo in memoria dei drammi legati al periodo del regime.

Muy cerca de la pirámide de Hoxha y camino a la plaza de la Madre Teresa se ubica uno de los miles de bunkers que el dictador mandó construir por todo el país en el peor momento de su relación con la Unión Soviética y China. Este en particular es una especie de garita de vigilancia al ras del suelo y tiene la particularidad de tener a su lado un fragmento del muro de Berlín.
