"History of old Tirana through 60 photographs" exhibition opened on the101st anniversary of Tirana

In this 101st anniversary of Tirana, the capital has opened the exhibition "History of old Tirana through 60 photographs", postcards, elements of folk costumes and rare objects from the Central State Archive in the Castle of Tirana. The director of this institution, Ardit Bido, considers this exhibition a good opportunity to remember the past

"We decided to celebrate the 101st anniversary of Tirana through this exhibition where the old images of the capital before 1945 are displayed. Here is a part of its history, with historical buildings with public function, Tirana apartments, events and characters", says Bido.

The President of the Association "Tirana Intellectum" Mirela Bogdani said that there is nothing left of old Tirana, except the Historic Center.

 "Many of these photos we see today are just photos because almost none of them exist. This is not only a day of remembrance but also a moment to call for the preservation of what is still left in the capital," said Bogdani.

The exhibition "History of old Tirana through 60 photographs" continues to be open in Tirana Castle.
