Skanderbeg Square, Tirana

(3.3/5 based on 550+ 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. See Skanderbeg Square and all Tirana has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tirana trip generator.

  • This is the main square of Tirana.It is a must see.This place is currently under construction,so it will be a surprise to check it out  more »
  • Currently under construction and probably for a long time the place is virtually inaccessible. Need to bypass it to access the buildings around. Although the project looks interesting it is a little excessive for the place! However, you can always access the mosque and the clock tower and the opera.
