Albania's National Stadium Is A Thing Of Beauty

Albania's national stadium is getting a lot of love on social media and it's hard to not be impressed by the facility.

The Air Albania Stadium, also known as Arena Kombëtar, plays host to Albania's home games and was officially opened on November 17 2019 in a 2-0 defeat to France.

With a capacity of 21,690, the stadium is incredibly impressive in its design and shape and has an 112-metre tower, 80-room hotel attached to it.

There is also a museum and shopping centre as part of the state-of-the-art project.

It was built on the same site as the old ground, which was demolished to make way for a new, modern facility near the capital city of Tirana.

You want beauty inside and out and that's the case for this stunning piece stadia, which was the brainchild of Marco Casamonti of Archea Associati.
