  • The square is under construction, so it is difficult if not impossible to get a satisfactory view of the statue. Perhaps in a year or two it will be worth a visit, but not now. 
  • A statue which stands very well unfortunately in its surroundings there are many remodeling and cannot be use or appreciate in a concrete way this important monument for locals

  • Despite the construction work in progress, one can get a good look at the statue of Albania's national hero. A must see on a visit to Tirana.
