Skanderbeg Statue, Tirana

Erected on the 500th birthday of an Albanian hero, Skanderbeg Statue sits in front of the National History Museum. 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. It is also a recognizable marker that alerts you to the location of the history museum and other nearby sites. Cars can drive around the square where the monument is located, so use caution when crossing the street.

  • 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.
