  • Itself and for itself this statue doesn't have anything particularly interesting from an artistic point of view. But it's not just the art to affect, is mostly nationalistic historical significance it represents. The feeling of belonging is very strong in the Albanians who rightfully are very proud. This statue, or a similar, it appears in every village and town to imperishable memory of the national hero.

  • Carving the leaders of Albania-Skandeberga. Located in the middle of the square. Crazy does, but it is wise to consult in advance with the feature and with such an attitude approach to the statue.
