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.

  • George Kastrioti Skanderbeg or better known is probably the most important figure in the history of Albania. A Portuguese King Afonso Henriques. Only here instead of the Spaniards the enemy were the Turks.

Where to stay in Tirana

All areas of Tirana boast accommodation at various price points. Hostels and hotels housed in Communist buildings dot the city center and immediate surroundings. As with the rest of Albania, prices here are generally low, and you can find even better deals as you move away from the city center. The tourism industry is fairly new in Tirana and the country as a whole, but you’ll be welcomed warmly by hospitable staff eager to show off their freshly post-Communist nation.
