Ismail Kadare House

The house of the world-famous Albanian writer, Ismail Kadare, has been turned into a museum. This is where Ismail Kadare was born and raised.

The house will be familiar to anyone who has read his book ‘Chronicle in Stone”, in which Kadare describes every corner of this house. During your visit you will imagine Kadare as a little boy, sitting close to the windows and witnessing the terrors of World War II.

The house was first built in 1799, and classified as a Cultural Monument in 1991. Recently, UNESCO and Albanian’s Ministry of Culture, repaired and rehabilitated the building under their auspices.
