Dëshmorët e Kombit Boulevard

The Dëshmorët e Kombit Boulevard is a major boulevard in Tirana, Albania. It was planned by the Italian architect Gherardo Bosio and built in 1939 to 1941, during the Italian occupation of Albania.

When first constructed, it was named the Viale del Impero (Avenue of the Empire). In 1934 to 1935, a bridge was built over the boulevard by Gjovalin Gjadri.

Many buildings are located along this boulevard, including the Presidential Palace, the Prime Minister's Office, the Palace of Congress, the Rogner Hotel and the University of Tirana. The boulevard enters the city centre from the south and intersects with Bajram Curri Boulevard near the Rinia Park. It then becomes part of Skanderbeg Square and continues north of the centre to Zogu I Boulevard.
