Skanderbeg Square, Tirana

(3.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Visit the statue of a national hero at Skanderbeg Square, in the center of the city. During the Albanian monarchy the square was surrounded by municipal buildings, hostels, and a bazaar. However, many of these were destroyed during communist rule and replaced with modern office buildings. In the center of the square is a statue of George Kastrioti Skanderbeg, the national hero credited with unifying the Albanian people. The statue is surrounded by an oblong section of grass and rows of trees in semi-circles at either end of the park. Cars can drive around the square, and you'll have to cross a busy street to enter the National History Museum next to the square.

  • This monument is the face of Albania. Skanderbeg is the National Hero of Albania, which represents the history of it. Must see! 
  • We have been there during the renovation...so unfortunate. Looks like a great place and historical location. Hope they'll renovate it soon and it that it will look superb. 
  • The square is a big open space and the building work was just starting when we visited-this could blight the area for a while.
