Tabak Bridge (Ura e Tabakëve), also known as Tanners’ Bridge, is a famous stone footbridge dating from the 18th century. Once part of the famous Shëngjergj Road between Tirana and key agricultural areas outside the city, it takes its name from the many butchers and tanners who operated in the area during the Ottoman era in Albania.
The bridge fell into disrepair for many years, but a restoration project in the 1990’s brought the wonderful architecture and utility of the pedestrian bridge back. Today the people of Tirana may soon enjoy a pedestrian zone surrounding the bridge. The architecture of this wonderful attraction is a testimony too, to the urban architecture of the area in the 18th century.
