Is freaky to see all the rooms and facilities used in that time, the furniture and the style. Everything seems so real. Is good to read a little bit the history before you visit it!

If you are obsessed with tradition, culture and communism history BunkArt has it all, when i was inside it it seemed like i was living in the 70', there'r plenty of historic objects and history. I'll go there again, that's for sure!

Absolutely fascinating place. The place is quite astonishing itself, but the story is also well told within Bunk'Art 1. A must if you are in and around Tirana. It's also dirt cheap

Not far from city centre, easy and cheap to go there with a urban bus. Very good destinations to understand the life during communist time in Albania.

I do not recall. I "think" it was approx 5 Euros. Any way - It was well worth it.
