Dëshmorët e Kombit Boulevard (English: Martyrs of the Nation Boulevard) is a major boulevard of Tirana, Albania, built by Italian architects. Formerly, it was called Bulevardi Mussolini. In 1934-35, a bridge was built over the boulevard by Gjovalin Gjadri.[1]

Many important buildings are located along this boulevard, including several universities and administrative buildings and banks (such as Alpha Credit Bank). The Rogner Hotel is also located on the boulevard. The boulevard enters the city centre from the south and intersects with Bajram Curri Boulevard near Rinia Park. It then becomes part of Skanderbeg Square and then continues north of the centre as Zogu I Boulevard.
