- Meet and assist at Mother Teresa. You will visit the Skenderbeg Square, the National Museum, the Palace of Culture, the gallery of Arts, the National Theatre, the Bunkart, the Pyramid, the Government area, the Blloku area, the mother Theresa square and the House of Enver Hoxha and the House of LeafsTransfer for a visit at Bunkart near the Dajti Mountain.Albania’s landscape is heavily punctuated with the aftermath of Enver Hoxha’s communist regime, most notably in the shape of 700,000 bunkers dispersed throughout the country. For a long time, the Albanian population saw their presence as something entirely normal. This was until the sinking realization that such a costly defense method, and one against an enemy that never came, was more than just unique, it was disturbing. Tourists and journalists alike, stand in awe of these strange objects, sticking out of Albania’s stunning landscape like mushrooms cropping up after rainfall.
In Albania, historical truths come about similar to the aforementioned mushrooms, one after the other and in plentiful numbers. The bunkers became part and parcel of daily life in Tirana, a regular aspect of the landscape. Then in 2014, came the opening of Bunk’Art 1. And a rather significant, but little-known truth came out to the Albanian population, the quite literal ‘concrete’ paranoia that possessed Enver Hoxha. This lurking paranoia that engulfed the former ruler was evident for all to see and Bunk art’ lies at the center of it all, a world full of secrets in Hoxha’s everlasting unfinished project.
