Archbishop of Tirana and All Albania Anastasios inaugurated the third largest Orthodox Church in Europe in Albania in the presence of dozens of Greeks.
The newly constructed cathedral is dedicated to the Resurrection of Christ and is located in the center of the Albanian capital. Members of the Albanian government and the neighboring country attended the ceremony which was held in all pomp and spiritual glory.
“The new cathedral in Tirana is one of the most important architectural constructions built over the past twenty years, not only for the Orthodox Church, but also for entire Albania. It was built near the central square of the Albanian capital in a historical region,” explains the mechanical engineer who undertook the project, Mr Leonidas Pappas.
