The place is surrounded by the mosque, the National History Museum, a carousel, and is basically a city park. It is terrific for people watching ....

The square is named after, and features an impressive statue of, the Albanian hero Skanderbeg. Lining it and around it you will also find such sites as the National History Museum, the National Opera, the Clock Tower, BunkArt2 and more. If you notice water pouring in all directions from the slightly rounded mound at the heart of the square, don't panic - it's an [admittedly unusual] water feature and is perfectly safe.

Skanderbeg Square is dedicated to Albania’s national hero, home to the Opera House and the National Historic Museum adorned with a gigantic mosaic mural known as 'The Albanians'. You can see the small and elegant Mosque of Et'hem Bey, one of the oldest buildings left in the city. We actually went to the National Historic Museum and came out to the square which is actually huge. It has some fountains on the ground that spritz out.

The fountains are great for our kids! We sat here and ate fast food dinner while the kids played. We also met some people from different cultures. A great place to pass an evening.

This is a very big square but totally lacking in interest...water was pouring from a number of places making large areas no go areas and there was a splash park at on side as well as a statue of a hero of yesteryear..very disappointing and a bit boring.
