Communist-era bunkers revamped in Albania

Entrepreneurs have put some shelters constructed under Enver Hoxha's regime into tourist attractions.

    It has been nearly 40 years since Albania's Communist leader ordered the construction of more than 250,000 concrete bunkers to protect from invasion.

    After the fall of Enver Hoxha's regime, the bunkers were deserted.

    But now Albanian entrepreneurs have transformed some of them with a coat of paint.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Potter reports.
