The Piramida (International Centre of Culture: Qendra Ndërkombëtare e Kulturës), formerly known as museum Enver Hoxha, was inaugurated in 1988. The building gained its current name – Piramida (EN: “Pyramid”) in the student movement of December 1990.

The building was designed by a team of architects under the direction of Enver Hoxha’s daughter, Pranvera Hoxha and Klement Kolanecit. Today, the Piramida hosts various international fairs, and is also the home of the Top Channel commercial television station of Tirana.

The building is one of the most popular architectural sights of the city, and can be found on numerous architecture tours recommendations. The building is popular as it can be climbed on foot, similar to the pyramids that inspired its design. In the vicinity you can find Tirana’s iconic Twin Towers, and other important landmarks.
