The main square is a great place to relax and the statue adds to the atmosphere. Its seems to be a gathering spot for people and is nice on a sunny day

I pass by it everyday. One of the marvelous things about Pristina is that here and at the colorful fountains next to the statue life is thrieving all day long, every day. The inhabitants (and the so-called villagers) love to embark on long strolls up and down Mother Theresa Boulevard and it is an absolute see and be seen place.

This statue is located at one end of the main pedestrian street on downtown Pristinha. Take some photos and then a stroll down to many of the excellent sidewalk eateries. I recommend Mery's where I had a truly excellent fish soup for € 2.40!

As others have implied, why are these things even rated on TripAdvisor? The fact is that it is a statue. As a statue, it's fine. There's a Skanderbeg statue down the road in Skopje, not to mention what you can find in Albania. if you don't know his role as a hero of the Albanians, this statue will mean little.... More

The area where this statute is located is now looking good and has been cleaned up so the statue at long last looks quite impressive. Interesting history connected with Skanderbeg.

...and that is an improvement because until recently it was a man on a horse located at a Yugoslav style square. Now, there is a fountain, a square where children play, coffee bars to enjoy and even the Benetton shop inside the old theatre has opened. Still, nothing extraordinary but for Pristina certainly an improvement.

If you have seen a statue of a man on a horse then this is what this looks like. But if you read up on the history before, it will mean more.

This is a great rendition of The Man himself. Not as imposing as the one in Tirana, but it's still pretty awesome.
