Orthodox building complex

A metropolitan church, a cultural and educational centre are included in the orthodox building complex of Gjirokaster, inaugurated on Sunday in the presence of the archbishop of Tirana and All Albania, Anastasios.
As it was reported in a relevant article of “Panorama” newspaper of Tirana, the church was planned to be built since the 1960s but the communist government of Enver Hodja at the time destroyed the foundation of the building.
During his speech at the inauguration ceremony, the Archbishop of Tirana and All Albania, Anastasios, stressed among other things, that the Church is a place for reconciliation, hope and fraternization.
