  • This statue dominates the sqaure. Very detailed and well worth taking a photo. It stands very high on a stone plinth.  more »
  • There's nothing to be done already in the UAW. 5-time allocation to the city. It's more beautiful than evening seascape Gholamreza

  • Central point of the city very open and spacious ... definitely a must step if you switch from tirana ... especially the fountain that supports PS eye that you wet your feet
