Not much to see. Standard statue material. There's not much else to see in pristina so may as well see it. More impressive than bill Clinton statue.

Skanderbeg (real name: Gjergj Kastriot) was born May 6 in 1405 and died on 17 January 1468. It is the Albanian National Hero, the most prominent figure in the history of Albanians.

it's a statue, of an Albanian historical character. Actually, you can find plenty of them accross the Albanian inhabited territories, that are similar to this one. So, if you're passing by Mother Tereza pedestrian street, just have a look at it, but don't consider losing time just to see that statue, there's better to do!

The open space by the statue is full of life with families and children strolling, playing and walking around. I watched the Euro 2016 in the open space where a projector was set for the public. A little more lighting at night would focus the statue more.

Skanderbeu is without any doubt considered to be the greatest historic figure among Albanians. As for the statue, it is situated on the main street of Prishtina and is easily reachable.

Situated at one end of a nice pedestrian zone the statue itself is nothing special (I like the Tirane Skanderbeg better) but it makes a nice backdrop if you are people watching from one of the nearby cafes.

This statue is in the main square of Prishtina, just next to the Governmental Building, opposite National Theatre and Beneton store. It was brought from Albania, as a present, for the Independence Day of Kosova

You wont missed this statue if you are in the heart of Tirana City center. It is located within the roundabout of Sheshi Skenderbej and surrounded by a number of attraction such as the Museum, opera house and the Mosque

I would tell people to meet me here and it was so easy to find in the Center. This is an Albanian hero, showing Kosovo's loyalty and love for their sister nation Albania. An a representation of their historical love for the other country, it is worth seeing. It also is in the center near great cheap restaurants so I... More

The statue it self is perhaps not the most beautiful, but the story behind Skanderbeg is interesting (read up on it before seeing the statue). It's in the north end of the Mother Terese street, and therefore a great fix point in the city, and easy to find. Also, everybody knows where it is, so it's easy to ask for... More
