The statue is located in a nice location that has been renovated. The whole boulevard, that has many statues, cafes, and fountains, is a lovely place to take a stroll. The location was not crumbling down as others have suggested, perhaps because such a young country is constantly renovating itself.

The area round the statue is a pleasant square, currently also an unwilling host to a white tent housing a long term sit in by former employees of a now privatised factory who are waiting for many years back pay.

This monument makes a great place to meet friends given its easy to find location. Skanderbeg is a national hero and his statue is given a place of honor here.

An equestrian statue on one of the main squares of Kosovo. Nice, but nothing special or impressive. Makes a nice photo though.

The Skanderbeg Statue is a good place to stop for a quick picture. Located next to the Kosovo main government buildings, on the pedestrian walkway, (Bulevardi Nene Tereza, near the water fountains. It is probably one of the best statues in Pristina. Also, because it is in a well-traveled area, there are many places to eat and watch the people.... More

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.
