  • During our visit the square was cordoned off for renovation so most of the attractions were unavailable. From what we saw it is an impressive site.  more »
  • The square is not fully renovated, but you can see Skanderbeg from afar. It's a fine statue, but like several statues of him I have seen I do wonder if he really had a small head!  more »
  • Albanian national Hero Skenderbe - Skanderbeg statue is a must visit for any traveler. He is the greatest hero of Albanians.  more »
