Albania

Fier's Ship House

Gigantic water vessel, permanently grounded in Southern Albania 

Edit Place

A good distance inland from the blue-green Adriatic Sea, and with no harbor in sight for miles, this strange house that looks like a ship rises out of the flatlands of inner Albania.

Although much of Albania's architecture often strays from the boring, this humongous ship house towers seven stories over the landscape on the road between Fier and Berat, Albania. Complete with multiple layers, giant portholes and a massive front deck, the ship house is a unique, white-washed tribute to Albania's nautical history.
