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.

Famous Albanian leader from the 1400's who survived many a battle but fell ill and died from Malaria. Although the area does need a bit of a clean up the monument is fairly impressive. The area is currently undergoing a lot of renovations so it surely will look great once done. A famous landmark from old Kosovo / Serbian war... More

THe statue itself is nice but the surrounding would need some improvements... The modern building behing the statue does not really fit there. The sidewalks need to be fixed and I would appreciate some description about the person.
