pretty statue

this is just a square with a statue in it but it is clean, and taken care of. across from the museum so you can't miss it.

Not bad, but rather an inner monument withing clean but poorly planned sqare - Generally quite provincial. You can't miss it if in Tirana (as you can hardly find what to do), but surely not to strive a glimpse.

A beautiful monument, but based on the pictures I had previously seen, I had assumed that the area around the statue was paved, allowing one to walk right up to the statue, but instead, there is grass and a low wall surrounding it. There is a path worn into the grass from people jumping the wall to cross the square... More

By the time we finished our three days in Albania we could recognise Skanderbeg instantly. The main statue is in the centre of the main square so it is impossible to miss. Great for photographing against the night sky and with the mosque in the background.

Skanderbeg is important for figure for Albanians, but nothing really special on this one. Its huge, just in the middle of the square surrounded by grass but you can not get in that area easily. Good for photographers and tourists who likes to take a picture of everything.

The city center can't be the same without the statue of the national hero. Nice place to take some nice pictures and a good start to explore the city due to his central position
