The square where this statue stands is being redeveloped in a *very* big way. Armies of workers but no signs of completion.

Skanberg castle up the road in the mountain town of Kruja is well worth the trip. There a a couple of buses each day, they do not leave from the lot at the end of Zogu Pare but leave from another lot 600 meters north via the street market. It is more convienence to catch a mini bus-van to Kruja. the best place to catch one is just east of the traffic circle on Durresit.
Much of the wall still standing and the tower. They have a museum within the walls and a nice street market just below the castle. The road is steep and the rocks can be slippery so watch your step. If passing cars while with oncoming traffic scares you, you best not look ahead. Traffic is pretty wild over there.
