I think this is a great addition to Tirana's centre. Its called Skanderbeg Square after all. He was Albania's national hero so its a great big part of our history. I love this place.

Skaderbeg is just one of my favorite statues ever. You can feel the strength of the history and the man. If it were to come alive while I stood watching I wouldn't be surprised. I see it every day as I walk out and I will never tire of it.

Skanderbeg's Statue takes pride of place in the very centre of Tirana. He's regarded as Albania's national hero and lived in the early 1400's when he defended the country against Ottoman attack. This statue show him atop his horse wearing his trademark helmet with a goat's head on top. Traffic around the statue is chaotic but its worth crossing the... More

Literally, it's in the center of Tirana which is a hub for many of the bus lines in the city and I pass by it almost daily for one reason or another. It's cool but if you know about who this guy is and what he means to the Albanian people and their history, it's pretty cool. If you are... More

So this statue is also in the main square. you can learn about more about Skanderbeg and his significance for albanians. there is not too much things actually to see in tirana but skanderbeg will expand your culture and history knowledge. enjoy...

It is nice to pass by, but not much to see here, just a statue in the middle of a square, not much else going on around it

Skanderbeg was our most important National Hero, but the monument in Tirane is just Skanderbeg on his horse, and the police from Bashkia Tirana told us not to walk on the grass. Comon, its just grass!!

Its been some time since my last visit to Tirana. Well the central Skenderbeg square is a very nice place very nicely renovated and ice lighted spot. Tirana has too much and too bussy traffic but this spot here is a place to visit
