ONE DAY IN TIRANA (ALBANIA) | 4K 60FPS | BONUSVIDEO: From Nuclear Shelter to Museum of Memory
They stand for fear, paranoia and dictatorship. After World War Two, Albania became a Stalinist state under dictator Enver Hoxha. Under his repressive rule, Albania was isolated from the rest of the world and the life of the population was controlled by the regime.
In the 1970s Hoxha started the “bunkerization“. Bunkers were build all over the country to be prepared against foreign aggression. The massive cost of construction was a drain on Albania’s resources, diverting them away from more pressing needs, such as dealing with the country’s housing shortage and poor roads. It also had a human cost; 70–100 people a year died building the bunkers.
The information about the number of bunkers varies depending on the source. Most estimates put the number at around 200,000.
With the opening of two museums, Bunk’Art 1 and 2, two important bunkers in Tirana have been made accessible to the public. One of them is a massive and exceptionally large bunker on the outskirts of Tirana. It was intended as a refuge from a nuclear attack for the dictator and the political elite only, so its existence was kept as a secret. Enver Hoxha died before the construction was completed. It was never used.
With my video I tried to capture the atmosphere of these bunkers, wich to me personally seemed to be unrealistic and sad.
However, I hope you will enjoy watching. I would be happy if you give my video a “like”, leave me a comment and subscribe my channel for further videos. All your feedback helps me a lot, and I can promise you to show all my passion in my upcoming videos as well. Thanks in advance for your support and a big hug!
