Tirana Fortress (alb. Kalaja e Tiranës) or Justinian Fortress (alb. Kalaja e Justinianit) was built in the 6th century by order of Emperor Justinian I in the very center of the Albanian capital. In the 18th century, the fortress was modernized by the Ottoman governor of Tirana, Ahmed Pasha Toptani. Currently, in one of the parts of the fortress, an interesting place has been created for tourists, where you can visit various shops, buy unique souvenirs or dine in the restaurant.
