Sacred Heart Church (Tirana)

The Sacred Heart Church (Albanian: Zemra e Krishtit Catholic Church of Tirana) is a Roman Catholic church in Tirana, Albania. It was built in 1865 as a gift from the emperor Franz Joseph but was closed in 1967.[1]

When it reopened, in 1990, Lonely Planet described the church as having "hilariously garish photo realistic images over a Communist whitewash that have to be seen to be believed".[2]
