The statue is the anchor of one of the main squares of Tirana. Impossible to miss and impressive. Unfortunately, the locals don't seem to hold it in much esteem as we observed two people urinating on it on separate occasions.

The statue can make a nice photo with the mosque and the mountains behind, but realistically when a statue is one of the highlights of your visit then you can tell what the city is like!

Majestic, impressive statue of the national hero who united the northern clans and fought the much stronger Ottoman empire. The landmark statue in Tirana.

Well, it's a statue on a square. It is famous. Ok, if you walk by you can take a look, but there's really nothing special about it.

Allows background photos from all directions. Prominently displayed in Tirana's largest downtown traffic circle. Be careful crossing three lanes of speeding auto and buses to get close.

It's a statue of a large man on a large horse. One of the sites to see, and would seem all capital cities in the region have this sort of statue!
