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.

Skanderbeg statue Reviews
Estatua ubicada en un agradable paseo peatonal. La estatua en sí no es espectacular, aunque conmemora a un héroe conocido en todos los Balcanes. more »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 »
