Skanderbeg statue, Pristina

2.1
Built atop a structure that resembles a traditional Albanian hat, Skanderbeg statue was lifted in 2001, paying homage to a 15th-century hero who fought off the Ottoman empire for decades. Skanderbeg prevented enemy forces from penetrating deeper into Western Europe and played a major role in formation of Albania's national consciousness. A small plaza surrounds the statue, serving as a meeting point for locals. Snap a photo of this complex of governmental buildings and flags centered around this important national monument.

  • Statue located in a pleasant pedestrian walkway. The statue itself is not spectacular, although it commemorates a known hero in all the Balkans.

  • It's interesting to see but it looks like an ordinary statue. But it's good to know the story behind the statue.  more »
