U.S. Embassy Tirana

U.S. Chancery in Albania

The U.S. Embassy in Tirana is a lovely Italian colonial-style building constructed in the 1920s.  It was the first building ever built by the Department of State to be an Embassy.  The Italian mission in Tirana used it during the Communist era when the U.S. had no diplomatic relations with Albania.  The building has since been renovated and now houses numerous U.S. Government agencies represented in Albania.
