St Paul's Cathedral is a cathedral in Tirana, Albania. It belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Tiranë-Durrës. The stained glass window to the left of the front door features Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa. Also a statue of Mother Teresa can be found at the entrance of the cathedral. It is a modern-looking building, and does not resemble a traditional church.
When Pope John Paull II visited Albania in 1993, he laid the cornerstone for the church. It was inaugurated on 26 January 2002.
The cathedral is built using a combined triangle and circle shape, representing the Trinity and God’s Eternity respectively, and features a relatively plain interior. At the back is a baptismal font with a Pascal candle. A statue of the apostle Paul is set on the top of the building.
