The monument stands at 11 m (36 ft) in the center of a grassy oval that frames its grandiose size. The central location makes the attraction easy to spot.

  • In the center of Tirana in the square is a statue of national hero on horseback Skentempei who fought back against the Ottomans for 40 years. The same statue is small for the importance of the hero.

  • The monument to the national hero Alexander (Kastrioti) of Skanderbeg. Well executed. Perhaps, in Tirana, there are two real attractions: the Orthodox Church and the monument.

  • Something similar to our Russian Orthodox warriors. In Russia many things like this done. This is no different.
